Melanopsis letourneuxi Bourguignat, 1884 

Original source.

Bourguignat 1884: 116.

Type locality.

"Dans la source et la rivière de la Moulouiah, à l’ouest de Lalla-Maghnia" [in the source and the river Moulouya, west of Maghnia], Morocco or Algeria.

Remarks.

Bourguignat denoted the authority as "Bourguignat, 1872, et Letourneux", apparently referring to Letourneux (1876b). That work is not available to me, but after Crosse (1877: 33) that record is a nomen nudum. It appears also as nomen nudum in Letourneux (1876a: 48). In addition, Bourguignat listed "Bourguignat. Spec. nov. Moll., no. 198, 1878", which displays the second part of "Species novissimae Molluscorum" ( Bourguignat 1876), but which was never published.
