I am unsure of the current taxonomy, as to whether the specimen could be Pygmipanda kershawi or P. atomata, the latter from central NSW.

Has anyone tried to add this species. I tried to add it, but it didn't come through as an option. Im wondering if it takes a while to officially go on the list of species now, or whether there is an error with that function.
BTW, I reckon this deserves to be listed as a significant sighting as its the first sighting of this species on CNM.

Is a significant sighting. Will increasingly become threatened due to global warming and increased fire frequency.

Pygmipanda kershawi is correct name

Does it currently have conservation status? Sounds like it should. Actually I'm guessing there are other Australian snail species that deserve some conservation listing as well.

As far as I know it does not have a conservation status as yet. Also clear-fell logging and burning in eastern Victoria is another threat. There are many Australian snail species that deserve conservation listing.
