[Exctract] Amphidromus is one of the largest groups of colourful tree-dwelling snails to have radiared in the Sourh-east Asian region (Sutcharit & Panha, 2006). The presence of three subspecies belonging to two different Amphidromus species is confirmed in Singapore - the nationally endangered green tree snail Amphidromus atricafLosus temasek of certain forest reserves, Amphidromus atricaffosus perakensis, so believed to be an introduced member Davison et al, 2008; Tan et al, 2011; Tan & Chan, 2012; Tan et al, 2012), and the critically endangered Amphidromus inversus found only in the 5ha remnant primary forest patch of the Singapore Botanic Gardens (SBG) known as the Gardens Jungle.
