Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Melanopsis broti Neumayr, 1880 

Original source.

Neumayr 1880b: 295, pl. 1, fig. 29.

Type horizon.

Plio-Pleistocene.

Type locality.

"Zwischen Pylle und Antimachia" [between Pýli and Antimácheia, Kos Island], Greece.

Remarks.

Pallary (1925) and Wenz (1929) erroneously referred to it as homonym of " Melanopsis broti  " Gassies, 1874, which was actually introduced as Melanopsis brotiana  . The replacement name Melanopsis cosiana  Pallary, 1925 is thus invalid as it is a junior objective synonym (see also Willmann 1981).
