Snail on bitter gourd - ID request
Dear Pestnetters,

Kindly attached are few pictures of a snail attacking a Bitter Gourd crop in Fiji. Please if anyone could help ID this particular pest. 
Pictures were taken in January 2018.

According to the farmer, this particular snail attacks the leaves, vines and especially the fruits. Farmer used to spray pesticides and fungicides but recently learned about snail bait which is more effective as should be. A number of bitter gourd farmers around the vicinity suffered the same issue. 

Many thanks
