Palau tree snails


Three tree snail species are found in the islands of Palau:

  • The great Palau tree snail - Palaupartula calypso
  • The white Palau tree snail - P. leucothoe
  • Palau Pandanus tree snail - P. thetis

    The largest of these strange partulids is P. calypso. It appears to have declined as habitat has been degraded on the islands, butsome populations still survive.
