Erepta wendystrahmi Griffiths

Strahm’s Erepta Snail (Erepta wendystrahmi)

This species was described in 2000 on the basis of subfossil material that had been collected in 1989 from limestone scree in the Limekiln Cave on the Île aux Aigrettes, Mauritius.

The shells reach heights of about 0.45 cm; they are depressed conic, solid and pale glossy white.
