Acta botanica neerlandica , Volume 25 - Issue 5 p. 337- 339
One snail species, Zonitoides arborius,. and one slug species, Deroceras laeve, were discovered seeking anthers of streptocarpus cultivars for food. There are no indications that their foraging movements induce self- or cross-pollination (malacophily).
