Remarks.

Handmann (1887) listed a Melanopsis varicosa nodescens  . It is unclear whether he actually introduced a new variety or ranked the species described in 1882 as variety of Melanopsis varicosa  Handmann, 1882. Wenz (1929: 2674) considered Melanopsis nodescens  Handmann, 1882 as a junior synonym of Melanopsis bouei  Férussac, 1823.
