Melanopsis insignis Locard, 1883 

Original source.

Locard 1883a: 202.

Type locality.

“Samava” [As Samawah], Iraq.

Remarks.

Appeared first as a nomen nudum in Martens (1874: 43, 67). Locard (1883a) introduced the species by referring to " Melanopsis Turcica  de Mousson [...] 1874, p. 44" [act. p. 49], which he obviously considered different from the variety described in Mousson (1874: 33).
