Abstract
    A fresh shell of the Hedge Snail Hygromia limbata limbata (Draparnaud, 1805) was discovered in November 2018 in a hedge in Rixensart (Walloon Brabant, Belgium). This is the first record of this species in Belgium. This Atlantic range of this species is progressing northeast, now reaching Belgium. The persistance of a living population in the territory is not yet proven, but this species could potentially become more frequent in the future, as is the case with the recent colonization of Hygromia cinctella (Draparnaud, 1801).
