"Du puits Karoubi" ( Pallary 1901a: 178) [from the well Karoubi], Algeria.


Introduced as replacement name for Melanopsis acuminata  Pallary, 1901, non “Sandberger” [act. Gümbel, 1861], for which Wenz (1919a: 73) had already introduced the replacement name Melanopsis pallaryi  . Thus, Melanopsis raphidia  is a junior objective synonym of Melanopsis pallaryi  .
