Melanopsis phoeniciaca Bourguignat, 1884 

Original source.

Bourguignat 1884: 133.

Type locality.

"Dans le Bélus [ près de Saint-Jean-d’Acre, en Syrie]" [in the Na’aman river, near Acre], Israel.

Remarks.

The spelling “phaeniciaca” on p. 76 is obviously a typesetting mistake regarding the ligature ( æ instead of œ). Heller et al. (2002: 596) considered the species (misspelt as “phoeneciaca”) a junior synonym of Melanopsis costata  (Olivier, 1804). Heller et al. (2005: 244) treated it as a junior synonym of Melanopsis lampra  Bourguignat, 1884.
