The European land snail Cepaea nemoralis (Linnaeus, 1758) was introduced in North America in 1857 in Burlington, New Jersey, U.S.A. There is only one anedoctal record of C. nemoralis from Montreal, Canada, but without a date or an exact location. In this note, recent records of C. nemoralis are presented for Montreal, based on surveys from 7 to 9 August 2009 along a southwest to northeast transect parallel to the Montreal-Dorion-Rigaud commuter railroad.
