Melanopsis orontis var. elevata Pallary, 1939  [unavailable]

Original source.

Pallary 1939: 92, pl. 6, fig. 74.

Type locality.

Unclear: given as “L’Oronte à Djishr ech Chegour" [Orontes river at Jisr Ash-Shughur] in text but as “L’Oronte à Homs" [Orontes river at Homs (which is far to the south of the former)] in plate captions, Syria.

Remarks.

Unavailable according to Art. 13.1, because it lacks a verbal description or definition. Heller et al. (2005: 244) considered it as a junior synonym of Melanopsis costata  (Olivier, 1804).
