"Mystery snails" and "apple snails" many times are one in the same. Since there are so many different species of snail they simply gave a generic name for all of them. The most common I see in stores is Pomacea bridgesi or sometimes Pomacea canaliculata. Take a look at this website for some in-depth info on those and other types of "mystery" snails. :)
