Chlorodiloma adelaidae is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Trochidae, the top snails.[2][3]


This species differs only from Chlorodiloma crinita in lacking the tooth at the base of the columella. The coloration, sculpture and form are identical.[4]


This marine species is endemic to Australia and occurs off South Australia and Tasmania.
