Melanopsis martiniana Ferussac, 1823 

Original source.

Férussac 1819-1851: Mélanopsides fossiles, pl. 2 (1823), figs 11-13 or Férussac 1823: 155, pl. 8, figs 11-13 (precedence not established; see introduction for discussion).

Type horizon.

Pannonian, late Miocene.

Type locality.

"Dans les environs de Bisentz et de Scharditz, en Moravie, dans la vallée de la Marsch, affluent du Danube" [in the surrondings of Bzenec and Šardice in Moravia, in the valley of the March river, a tributary of the Danube], Czech Republic.

Remarks.

Junior objective synonym of Melanopsis fossilis  (for details see there). The name “martinii” as mentioned by numerous authors (e.g., Chenu 1859: 297) is an incorrect subsequent spelling.
