Apple snails come in a lot of varieties, hence lumping them all in the mystery category. The real issue is actually the specie of apple snail. This is the short list:

Pomacea bridgessi (the most widely known, often referred to as "Golden" Apple snail)
Pomacea canaliculata
Pomacea insularum
Pomacea lineata
Pomacea doliodes
Pomacea haustrum
Pomacea maculata

Check Apple snail site for more info.

Agreed. Mystery Snail = some species of Apple Snail.
