Melanopsis zelandica Gould, 1847 

Original source.

Gould 1847: 225.

Type locality.

"New Zealand" [no locality indicated].

Remarks.

Suter (1893: 139) considered the taxon as a junior synonym of Zemelanopsis trifasciata  (Gray in Dieffenbach, 1843). The name “zealandica” as mentioned in Hutton (1883: 67) is an incorrect subsequent spelling.
