Type locality.

"Dans le lac d’Antioche, dans l’oued Baradah près Aïn Fidji, et dans l’Aïn Plaça, fontaine de la plaine du Bahr-el-Houlé” ( Bourguignat 1884: 82) [in Lake Anuk (also as Amik), in the river Barada near Aïn al-Fiji, and in Aïn el Placa, a spring in the plains of the Hula valley], Syria.

Remarks.

Replacement name for Melanopsis prophetarum minor  Bourguignat, 1884, non Grateloup, 1838 (see Note 1). The type locality given by Wenz ("U. Orontestal, 7 km unterhalb Antâkîje”) is incorrect.
