Melanopsis douttei Pallary, 1911 

Original source.

Pallary 1911: 133, [unnumbered plate], figs 21-22.

Type locality.

“Fez” [Fes], Morocco.


Given as “doutte” on p. 133, but as " douttei  " in plate caption. Since Pallary explicitly named the species after E. Doutté, the name must read " douttei  " (Art. 32.5.1).
