This is an amended version of the 2007 assessment to revise the genus name for this species and to update the taxonomic notes.
After the introduction of the carnivorous snail Euglandina rosea to Tahiti in 1977 populations and species began to disappear rapidly as a result of predation. No live individuals were found in searches in the 1980s and 1990s and during the intensive surveys on the main island of Tahiti Nui 2003-2005. The taxonomy has changed several times and remains unclarified.
