Introduced for Melanopsis aquensis  sensu Fuchs, 1870, non Grateloup, 1838. Junior homonym of Melanopsis subtilis  Brot, 1879. That name was introduced in synonymy but became available from Clessin (1890), who treated it as valid species-group name (see Note 2). Wenz (1929: 2804) considered the taxon as a junior synonym of Melanopsis petrovici  Brusina, 1893.
