Aaadonta pelewana is a species of snail,[3] a terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Endodontidae. It is found in Palau,[4][5] where it was known from Peleliu and Koror. If it is still extant, it is threatened by the destruction and modification of its tropical moist lowland forest habitat.
