Melanopsis porumbari Porumbaru, 1881 

Original source.

Porumbaru 1881: 29, pl. 7, fig. 5, pl. 9, fig. 3.

Type horizon.

Early–middle Romanian, Pliocene.

Type locality.

"Cretzesci et Podari" [Crețești and Podari], Romania.

Remarks.

Porumbaru attributed the authority to Brusina, but there is not clear evidence that the description really derived from that author. The name “porumbarui” as mentioned in Fontannes (1887: 336), Stefanescu (1896: 134) and Wenz (1929: 2806) is an incorrect subsequent spelling.
