Talparia talpa talpa (Linnaeus 1758).
49.8 mm., F++/Gem.
Location, location, location! This is by far the rarest offering in this auction. Specimens of T. talpa have been found in various Tropical Eastern Pacific islands, but they are not viablely reproducing populations and therefore are very rare. This particular specimen comes from a small island just off the mainland of Panama, a location that is not reported in the literature as having produced any T. talpa specimens. Rare!
