Examples of "decollata"
Cerithidea decollata, common name the truncated mangrove snail, is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Potamididae.
The decollate snail, scientific name "Rumina decollata", is a medium-sized predatory land snail, a species of terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Subulinidae. It is a European species that has been introduced in a number of areas worldwide.
The decollate snail ("Rumina decollata") will capture and eat garden snails, and because of this it has sometimes been introduced as a biological pest control agent. However, this is not without problems, as the decollate snail is just as likely to attack and devour other gastropods that may represent a valuable part of the native fauna of the region.

"Rumina decollata" is a voracious predator, and feeds readily upon common garden snails and slugs and their eggs. The snail eats plant matter as well, but the damage it causes to plants is considered minor when compared with the benefit of its predation on garden snails and other pest species of snails. Unfortunately it will also consume harmless local species of land gastropods, and beneficial annelids.
Threats to this species and to other invertebrates living in the same habitat include the loss of the water sources that feed the karst cave network. This has been caused by the tapping of the aquifer beneath it; some areas have been drained dry. Diamond Y Spring and East Sandia Spring are in danger of being drained. The springs are also located in active oil and gas extraction regions, and pollution of the water is a threat. Fire is also a destructive force in the wildlife refuge habitat. The introduction of the decollate snail ("Rumina decollata") is a potential threat, as it could be a predator upon the assiminea.
In some species as high-spired shells become adult the soft parts of the animal cease to occupy the upper parts of the cavity of the shell. The space thus vacated is sometimes filled with solid shell, as in "Magilus" ; or it is partitioned off, as in "Vermetus", "Euomphalus", "Turritella", Triton or Caecum. The empty apex in these shells is sometimes very thin, and becomes brittle. In some species it breaks away, leaving the shell truncated or decollated. Decollated shells usually have the whorls of the spire closely wound and not increasing much in diameter. A typical example is the decollate snail ("Rumina decollata").
