Amastra subrostrata (Pfeiffer)

Subrostrate Amastra Snail (Amastra subrostrata)  

This species was described in 1859, it was found on the island of O’ahu, however, an exact locality has apparently not been recorded.  

The shell reached a size of about 1,5 cm.  

This species may be a somewhat elongated form of the White-lipped Amastra Snail (Amastra albolabris (Newcomb)).
