In April 2014, numerous specimens of Cepaea nemoralis were found in Budy, a village in the Białowieża region of eastern Poland. This record sets the total number of mollusc species known to this region to 115. The other locality, in the village Brok about 140 km west of Białowieża, indicates that the species is spreading to the northeast.
