The miraculous Partula

Partula mirabilis

This species was widespread on Moorea island. It was highly variable in colour and seems to have been the link between the two main species groups on Moorea. Although these groups did not hybridise both could breed with mirabilis, and so genes flowed between all species, making interpretations extremely difficult.
