Achatinella caesia Gulick

Cutted Oahu Tree Snail (Achatinella caesia)

This species was described in 1858.

The shells reach sizes of about 1,8 cm in height; the shining shell is so streaked with white and fawn brown as to have a gray appearance. [1]

The species was already rare in the 1900s and is now considered extinct.
