Partula rustica Pease

Rustic Tree-Snail (Partula rustica)

This species comes from the island of Ra’iatea, and was obviously restricted to a single valley at the west coast of the island, where the animals were found under decaying plant material.

The Rustic Raiatea Tree-Snail is now, like most of its relatives from the island of Ra’iatea, considered extirpated.
