Type material

Holotype CUMZ 6255 (Fig. 10E). Measurement: shell height 4.5 mm, shell width 7.2 mm, and with 6 whorls. Paratypes: CUMZ 6033 (2 shells) from the type locality.

Type locality

Gau Cerita, Langawi, Malaysia, 6°27'21.8"N, 99°49'29.8"E.

Diagnosis

This species differs from Discartemon roebeleni, Discartemon sangkarensis, Discartemon vandermeermohri and Discartemon kotanensis sp. n., in having a smaller shell, higher spire, a nearly smooth shell surface, an angular last whorl, a sub-quadrangular aperture with a sinulus, and in having only one parietal lamella.

Description

Shell. Shell globose-heliciform, white and translucent; whorls 6, spire elevated conical, with distinct suture. Shell surface glossy, smooth with thin transverse ridges near aperture; varices present. Embryonic shell large, about 2½ whorls, with a smooth surface; following whorls regularly coiled. Last whorl angular, inflated and regularly expanded. Umbilicus open and deep. Aperture sub-quadrangular with sinulus; peristome discontinuous, expanded and reflected. Apertural dentition of only one parietal lamella (Fig. 10E).

Distribution

Known only from the type locality among limestone karsts up to 100 meters amsl, surrounded by mangrove forests on the northeast Langkawi Island coastline.

Remarks

The new species is apparently rare and extensive searching yielded only three examples.
