Type horizon.

Cernikian, Pliocene.

Type locality.

“Malino” ( Brusina 1878: 348), Croatia.

Remarks.

Pallary (1925) introduced Melanopsis simulata  as replacement name for the presumed junior homonym Melanopsis arcuata  Brusina, 1878, non Matheron, 1842. The alleged homonymy is, however, based on a reading error of Melanopsis armata  Matheron, 1842 by Pallary. Therefore, Melanopsis simulata  is a junior objective synonym of Melanopsis arcuata  Brusina, 1897.
