Melanopsis lushani d'Archiac in Viquesnel, 1846 

Original source.

Viquesnel 1846: 265, pl. 16, fig. 1.

Type horizon.

Pannonian, late Miocene.

Type locality.

"Entre Koulana et Lus-han" [between Koulana and Lus-han, S of Drin river mouth], Albania.

Remarks.

Originally the name was introduced as “Lus-Hani”; the name " Lushami  " as mentioned in Chenu (1859: 297) is an incorrect subsequent spelling. Wenz (1929: 2715) considered the taxon as a junior synonym of Melanopsis fossilis  (Gmelin, 1791).
