In coastal area lived a population of Pandanus tectorius. There were three new record plants found. The first was epiphytic orchid: Pteroceras javanica , the second was the epiphytic plant: Hoya verticillata and wild tuber plant: Tacca leontopetaloides. Periplus Edition, Singa-pore.

Moreover, the shell characteristics of the new species being described here are quite peculiar and a description based on this should suffice. Material examined.
John Abbas, September Whorls 6. Tip of apex faintly pinkish-brown, some individuals with a brown-black spot. No distinct dark axial bands marking interruptions in shell development resting stages were present in all examined specimens.
Parietal wall thin and transparent, aperture light yellow to brown, outer lip thin, slightly expanded outwardly but not reflected. Columella white, thin, slightly curved, without folds. Umbilicus perforated or nearly closed. Ground colour light yellow Figs. This suggests an affinity to humidity and according to Monk et al. John Abbas, the naturalist who alerted the authors about its potential novelty status. However, this new species lacked the callous nodule see Pilsbry, typical of A. The radial band and pattern are consistent in most of the specimens examined but some are only faintly marked and others, rather monotonous.
These bands and patterns, and the general light brown ground colour forms are reminiscent of that in A. Because of their morphological similarities, the Amphidromus Syndromics species of Sumba, as well as Sumbawa and Flores and possibly Bali are suggested to have been derived from ancestral stocks of Javanese A.
Other than the type location, separate populations of Amphidromus Syndromus abbasi new species have not been found and the species could possibly be endemic. However, a conservative approach is adopted here until further investigative work coupled with corroborative anatomical studies warrants description of a new subgenus. Special thanks goes to Mrs. Ristiyanti M. Marwoto for letting Mr. The authors are very grateful to John for all the important comparative specimens sent for this study and good descriptions of Sumba.
