Australdonta sp. ‘Rimatara 1’

Undescribed Australdonta Snail (Australdonta sp.)

This form is known only on the basis of subfossil material that was found on the island of Rurutu, Austral Islands.

The taxon is apparently not identical with any of the already described taxa from the island but apparently the remains are too scanty for a proper description yet. [1]
