Australdonta radiella ssp. rurutuensis (Garrett)

Australdonta Snail (Australdonta radiella ssp. rurutuensis 

This somewhat enigmatic form was described in 1879, apparently from a single specimen from the island of Rurutu that only slightly differs from the ‘normal’ Australdonta radiella (Pfeiffer) from the neighboring island of Tubuai. [1]
