Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Pakaurangia Finlay, 1926 

Original source.

Finlay 1926: 380, 476.

Original classification.

Subgenus of Zemelanopsis  .

Type species.

Melanopsis waitaraensis  Marwick, 1926, by original designation.

Remarks.

Finlay (1926) included also another species, the fossil Coptochetus zelandicus  Marshall, 1918 (p. 265, pl. 22, fig. 13), in this subgenus. That species is, however, not a Melanopsidae  but belongs to the marine genus Exilia  Conrad, 1860 after Beu and Maxwell (1990: 414) and is consequently not treated in this catalogue. Finally, Bouchet and Poppe (1995: 503) synonymized Pakaurangia  with the marine deep-water genus Calliotectum  ( Volutidae  ).
