Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Melanopsis maroccana var. media Blanckenhorn, 1897 

Original source.

Blanckenhorn 1897: 124, pl. 10, fig. 4.

Type locality.

"Dans les eaux le l’ancien Léonthes” ( Mousson 1854: 51) [in the Litani river], Lebanon.

Remarks.

Replacement name for Melanopsis brevis  Parreyss in Mousson, 1854, non Sowerby, 1826 (see also Pallary 1916). Blanckenhorn (1897) denoted the authority as “Bourg.”, but from the discussion it is clear that Blanckenhorn must be the author.
