|Scientific Name:||Partula garretti|
|Species Authority:||Pease, 1864|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Extinct ver 3.1|
|Reviewer/s:||Cowie, R. & Seddon, M.|
After the introduction of the carnivorous snail Euglandina rosea in the late 1980s, native partulid species began disappearing rapidly. By 1992 there were few left and no live individuals were found during surveys in 1994 and 2000 or during subsequent scientific expeditions to high altitudes.
Previously, this species appeared on the IUCN Red List as Extinct in the Wild (EW), however at the time the species in the breeding programme was incorrectly identified as Partula garretti. That EW species has subsequently been reclassified as Partula tristis, and P. garretti is now confirmed as Extinct.
