Tuvaluan Thaumatodon Snail (Thaumatodon decemplicata)
This species was described in the year 1873.
The minute species, whose shell reaches a size of only about 0,26 cm in diameter, seems to live in decaying wood.
The Tuvaluan Thaumatodon Snail is currently known only from several specimens that had been collected on the Nukufetau- and the Vaitupu atoll respectively, its status is unfortunately currently unknown.
The genus Thaumatodon currently comprises nine species, which all occur exclusively on some few islands in Polynesia.
