REDISCOVERY OF THE TERRESTRIAL SNAIL Chloritis remoratrix (Morlet, 1893) AFTER NEARLY 120 YEARS IN VIETNAM (Gastropoda: Camaenidae)
Keywords:Gastropoda, Camaenidae, taxonomy, forests over limestone, Lai Chau
The terrestrial snail Chloritis remoratrix (Morlet, 1893) was reported from border region between Laos (Champasak Province) and Cambodia (Stung Treng Province). Based on specimens collected from Phong Tho District, Lai Chau Province, we present a re-description of this species, including new information on shell morphology, dimensions, and habitat. The known distributed range and systematic of the species are also given and discussed. C. remoratrix has some the following characters as: shell dextral, large in size, and yellowish to brownish, usually with narrow dark brown bands on periphery; last whorl slightly angulate; aperture semicircular; peristome little thickened and widely expanded; umbilicus open and deep.
