Sabba Stefanescu, to whom Pallary referred, did not denote the localities of the figured specimens. He reported Melanopsis bouei  from many localities in Romania.


Introduced for a part of Stefanescu’s material of Melanopsis bouei  ( Stefanescu 1896: pl. 11, figs 63-64). Wenz (1929: 2681) considered the taxon as a junior synonym of Melanopsis bouei  Férussac, 1823.
