Leptachatina teres (Pfeiffer)

Terete Leptachatina Snail (Leptachatina teres)

This species was described in 1855; it is thought to have been endemic to the island of O’ahu, Hawaiian Islands.

The Terete Leptachatina Snail appears to be very closely related to the Obtuse Leptachatina Snail (Leptachatina obtusa (Pfeiffer)) and both may even be conspecific. [1]
