The Pale Banded Snail has, as the common name suggests, a pale, yellowish shell with many strong, dark brown spiral bands. It also has a dark brown patch behind the outer lip and on the umbilical region on the base of the shell.
This is a reasonably large species with a low, dome-spired shell that can grow to around 35 mm in diameter. The animal is a striking pinkish orange with a red mantle. It can be found living under and inside logs, and under rocks, tree-stumps and debris in open forests, woodland, vine thickets and in suburban gardens.
