Taxonomic review of the tree snail Amphidromus albers
Category : pub
Chirasak Sutcharit & Somsak Panha, 2006. Taxonomic review of the tree snail Amphidromus albers, 1850 (Pulmonata: Camaenidae) in Thailand and adjacent areas: subgenus Amphidromus. Journal of Molluscan Studies (2006) 72: 1 - 30.
|Abstract - "Extensive series of Amphidromus Albers, 1850 were collected from low-altitude areas (30 - 500 m above sea level) in Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia between 1993 and 2004. Data on shell colour, genital and spermatophore morphology, and radular structure are presented. |
Five species of Amphidromus (Amphidromus) are reviewed, of which four occur in Thailand. Intraspecific variation between populations of Amphidromus (Amphidromus) atricallosus (Gould, 1843) is considered; three subspecies are accepted and a new subspecies described.
Subspecies of A. (A. ) inversus (Mueller, 1774) and A. (A. ) schomburgki (Pfeiffer, 1861) are reconsidered, and a new subspecies of the latter is described. A dichotomous key to the species and subspecies of Amphidromus (Amphidromus) in Thailand is provided."
