Australdonta pseudplanulata Solem

Plane Australdonta Snail (Australdonta pseudplanulata)

The Plane Australdonta Snail was described in 1976; it was named after its similarity to the Plane Minidonta Snail (Minidonta planulata Solem) with which it shared its habitat.

This is the smallest species within its genus; the shells reach sizes of 0.5 to 0.28 cm; they are light yellowish horn-colored without any darker markings. [1]
