Brown snail on cedar elm

On July 20, when I wandered along the east bank of Waller Creek adjacent to Chesterfield Ave. in north-central Austin, I found the asymmetric sunflower that you saw last time. I also found, I’ll add now, not a partridge in a pear tree, but a snail in a cedar elm tree, Ulmus crassifolia. Most of the snails I find on plants are tiny and white, but this one was larger and had tan and brown markings, as you can confirm.
