Melania ricinus Neumayr in Neumayr & Paul, 1875 

Original source.

Neumayr and Paul 1875: 36, pl. 7, fig. 34.

Type horizon.

Cernikian, Pliocene.

Type locality.

"Cigelnik [Ciglenik]; [...] Novska", Croatia.

Remarks.

Neumayr mentioned uncertainties regarding the locality Ciglenik because he had lost the original collection label. The species epithet is a noun in apposition and needs not to agree in gender with the generic name (Art. 31.2.1). Considered to belong in the genus Amphimelania  by Brusina (1897: 6), Cossmann (1909: 126) and Wenz (1929: 2876).
