Melanopsis narzolina d'Archiac in Viquesnel, 1846 

Original source.

Viquesnel 1846: 266.

Type horizon.

Late Miocene.

Type locality.

“Piémont” [no locality indicated], Italy.

Remarks.

The name was based on Bonelli’s unpublished catalogue, but was first described in Viquesnel (1846) as "M.[elanopsis] narsolina" [sic]. However, the name Melanopsis narzolina  - probably the “correct” spelling sensu Bonelli - has been in prevailing usage since then. For reasons of stability the name narzolina  should be maintained according to Art. 33.3.1 (see Harzhauser et al. 2015: 10).
