" Melanopsis magnifica m. senilis " mentioned in Peres (1939)  [unavailable]

Locality.

"Stations 117 et 117his: Oued Bou Fekrane à 13 kilomètres de Meknès sur la route d’El Hajeb" [Stations 117 and 117His: Oued Boufekrane, 13 km S of Meknes on the road to El Hajeb], Morocco.

Remarks.

Introduced as infrasubspecific taxon ( “mode”), which is not governed by the provisions of the Code. Moreover, the name is a nomen nudum. Pérès referred to an earlier publication of his ( Pérès 1938a), claiming that he had described the taxon there already. In that work, however, he only mentioned a subfossil and a "forme modifiée” of Melanopsis magnifica  Bourguignat, 1884.
