scientific name

Trachia Albers, 1860
status

 

Taxon classification Animalia Stylommatophora Camaenidae

Genus Trachia Albers, 1860 

Trachia  Albers in Albers & Von Martens, 1860: 160.

Remarks.

The classification of this genus is still unresolved ( Solem 1964). We include the species below on account of the similarity of its shell to that of Trachia pudica  Godwin Austen, 1891, a species native to Sabah. With its drawn-out peristome it would also fit in Planispira  Beck, 1838, but all species included in this genus have an open umbilicus.
