status

 

Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Melanopsis matheroni var. ecarinata Fontannes, 1880 

Original source.

Fontannes 1879-1882: 176, pl. 10, fig. 3.

Type horizon.

Miocene or Pliocene.

Type locality.

Rhône Basin (no exact locality given), France.

Remarks.

Based on material from the Rhône Basin, not Italy as claimed by Wenz (1929); probably the taxon was mixed up by Italian authors cited by Wenz (1929). Harzhauser et al. (2015: 9) considered the taxon as a junior synonym of Melanopsis narzolina  d’Archiac in Viquesnel, 1846.
