The present investigation was undertaken to study a shell disease of the freshwater snail, Pila globosa. Observations were made in June-July in four consecutive years. The disease first appears as blisters in the periostracum and then, once the periostracum is lost from these lesions, dissolution of the underlying calcified layer. The numerically predominant bacterial genera in the lesions included Aeromonas, Pseudomonas, Escherichia and Listeria. Communication describes this previously unreported shell disease, which may be a health problem in apple snails.
