Remarks.

Homonym of the simultaneously described Melanopsis taurinensis  Sacco, 1889. Wenz (1928b) invalidly selected the variety as valid and introduced a replacement name for the species, but the taxon of higher rank takes precedence (Art. 24.1 and 57.7). No valid replacement name exists for the variety at present.
