Apart from clear conchological
differences, the animal is differently coloured (reddish orange instead of colourless/whitish), the genital anatomy differs in various details, and the species has ground-dwelling rather than arboreal habits.
However, this is the only significant conchological
difference between this material and typical C.
Conservation efforts, however, are hindered by poor taxonomy and phenotypic plasticity in conchological
features (Campbell et al.
The genus occupies conchological
morphospace somewhat intermediate between that of typical Euchelus and Granata.

Notes: We have been unable to identify any morphological characters, either conchological
or anatomical, which serve to distinguish this subspecies from the nominotypical one.
We are aware, however, that some of the conchological
characters of this coastal lineage may relate to environmental conditions, particularly edaphic characters (calcium-rich soils) and this is a topic requiring further study.
