scientific name

Melanopsis tumida Pallary, 1916
status

 

Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Melanopsis tumida Pallary, 1916 

Original source.

Pallary 1916: 86.

Type locality.

Stated to be uncertain by Philippi (1887, p. 40): "vermutlich bei Lebu oder Tubul gefunden" [probably found near Lebu or Tubul, Región del Biobío], Chile.

Remarks.

Pallary (1916) introduced this replacement for the presumed secondary homonym Melanopsis obesa  (Philippi, 1887), non Gassies, 1856. Despite a valid nomenclatural act, the name is hardly useful because Philippi’s species is certainly no Melanopsidae  .
