Neohoratia coronadoi (Bourguignat)

Crowned Neohoratia Snail (Neohoratia coronadoi)

The Crowned Neohoratia Snail was described in 1870; I could not find out much about it except for a brief account of its former type locality.:

in Madrid’s surroundings or, at least, in some springs or streams of the New Castille Province” [1]

The species is now considered most likely extinct. [1]
