Photo of the day (151): Bahiensis

Alex Popovkin, field botanist in Mateiro, Bahia, Brazil, sent me several pictures and asked for an identification.

This is undoubtedly an Odontostomidae, of which several closely related genera do occur in this region. Although the variation in this group is not well studied, my best guess for the moment is Bahiensis bahiensis (Moricand, 1833).
