Remarks.

Brusina (1874) divided the species Melanopsis inconstans  Neumayr, 1869 into three varieties, none of which he termed " inconstans  ". The first one, "var. costulata  ", he referred to as the typical one, which makes it an objective synonym of the nominal subspecies and hence Melanopsis inconstans  .
