Taxonavigation

Ordo: Architaenioglossa

Genus: Plectostoma

Name

Plectostoma palinhelix (van Benthem Jutting, 1952)Wikispecies linkPensoft Profile

Type material

Holotype: ZMA 136030(1) (Seen). Paratype: ZMA 136031(>10) (Seen).

Other examined materials

BOR 466(1), BOR 5520(5), V 5104(5).

Diagnosis

Shares with Plectostoma retrovertens the spire and tuba form, but differs by having spire height between 1.6–1.9 mm.

Description

Apex. Shape: slightly convex.
Spire. Height: 1.6–1.9 mm. Width: 1.1–1.3 mm. Number of whorls: 3 3/4–4 1/4. Apical spire shape: depressed conical. Basal spire shape: ovoid. Whorl periphery: moderately to distinctly convex. Umbilicus: partially or completely closed by tuba.
Constriction. Parietal teeth: two. Basal teeth: none.
Tuba. Coiling direction: type 2 and aperture visible between right lateral and back view; the tuba coils upward until the first teleconch whorl of the spire. Tuba whorl length similar to that of the last whorl of the spire. Proportion of tuba that attaches to spire: whole.
Aperture and peristome. Peristome: double peristomes. Outer peristome shape: similer to inner peristome, projected all around, except the posterior part, where the two lateral sides are slightly more projected than the anterior side.
Spiral lines. Thick lines: present. Thin lines: present.
Radial ribs. Rib density: 7–8 ribs per mm. Rib intensity: thin. Shape: straight. Inclination: orthoclin.

Distribution

Type locality. Bukit Serdam, Pahang (3°49'47"N, 101°55'36"E).
Distribution range. To date, this species has been recorded from three limestone hills, namely Bukit Serdam, Gua Kechil and a small hill nearby (Figure 18C).

Conservation status

Vulnerable (B2ab(iii) ver. 10.1). There are four limestone hills in this area, of which Bukit Serdam and its next unnamed hill support populations (assessment done in 2010 and 2011). Two of the hills, namely, Bukit Serdam and Gunung Panas, are now being quarried. The smallest unnamed hill is highly degraded and Gua Kechil is surrounded by oil palm plantation.

Discussion

See discussion under Plectostoma retrovertens.
