status

 

Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Melanopsis sancta Bourguignat, 1884 

Original source.

Bourguignat 1884: 129.

Type locality.

"Eliasbrunnen bei Jericho" ( Kobelt 1880: 17) [Naẖal Elisha‘ (?) near Jericho], Palestine.

Remarks.

Introduced for Melania costata  sensu Kobelt, 1880 (p. 17, pl. 188, fig. 1901), non Olivier, 1804. Bourguignat denoted authority as "Letourneux, 1882", but there is no evidence that the description really derived from that author. Heller et al. (2005: 248) considered the species as a junior synonym of Melanopsis saulcyi  Bourguignat, 1853.
