Trochulus striolatus, previously known as Trichia striolata, common name the "strawberry snail," is a species of small, air-breathing land snail, a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Hygromiidae.
This species of snail uses love darts before mating.

The colour is whitish to yellow-brown or red-brown with irregular growth lines and often a pale band on the angled periphery. The adult shell is hairless but bears scattered coarse hairs when juvenile.
This snail is native to northwestern Europe, occurring in:
