Melanopsis camptogramma Brusina, 1876 

Original source.

Brusina 1876: 109.

Type horizon.

Early Langhian, middle Miocene.

Type locality.

Originally given as “Sinj” and later specified as “Župića potok" in Brusina (1884b), Croatia.


Milan et al. (1974: 87) stated that Brusina (1897) had indicated one of the specimens illustrated by him (pl. 5, figs 1-2) as type. However, it is uncertain whether the specimen actually derives from the original type series. The specimen is stored in the Croatian Natural History Museum, Zagreb, coll. no. 2980-626/1.
