Melanopsis praerosa [sic] var. ocuticarinata Paetel, 1888 

Original source.

Paetel 1888: 403.

Type locality.

“Persia” ( Nevill 1884: 209), Iran.

Remarks.

Nevill (1884) first mentioned the name “acuticarinata” [sic] for an infrasubspecific taxon ( “subvariety”), which he briefly described. Paetel (1888) made the name available by ranking it as species-group name and referring to the description of Nevill (Art. 45.5.1). Although he obviously “misspelt” the name, ocuticarinata remains the valid spelling because Nevill’s “acuticarinata” is not available as species-group name.
