Vitta picta (Férussac 1823)



These little guys are "klein aber fein" as we say in Germany. The largest one is only 4mm. long, but they sure do live up to their name.

Florianer Schichten

Middle Miocene

From Fuggaberg, Styria, Austria

Thanks to Franz Bernhard

Here's another one below.

"Small is beautiful"

God, mother nature, self-regulating biochemical feedback loops (....) did one of their best on these little snails!

What I like is also this contrasting simple one on matrix. Looks like G., m. n., s.-r. b. rf l. (...) were in deep sleep in this moment ;). But still nice in its simplicity!

Hi Franz and thanks again. I really enjoyed sorting through the little gems and think I have everything pretty well identified now. I'll be posting some more in this gallery, so please let me know if I make any mistakes. My main difficulty is differentiating Granulolabium bicinctum from G.plicatum sturi. I believe you probably separated them when you packed them, but I mixed them up before I realized that.

Hello Roger,

If you arrange all the Granulolabium in a row, G. plicatum will stick out, just try it :). I think, there are only two of them in the mix and I did not separate them from the others. They are rare at Fuggaberg-3, but at other sites, G. plicatum makes 2/3 of all Granulolabium.

 

Btw, isn´t it Vitta picta (Férrusac 1825) according to fossilworks etc.? What ref. are you using?

 

Greetings!
Franz Bernhard

Aha. I though that you had intentionally separated the Granulolabiums. I'll try what you are suggesting. You're right about the author by Vitta. I think I must have been thinking of something else when I posted it. Thanks.
