Melanopsis briarti Munier-Chalmas, 1897  [invalid]

Original source.

Munier-Chalmas 1897: 86.

Type horizon.

Late Danian, Paleocene.

Type locality.

“Mons” ( Briart and Cornet 1873: 71), Belgium.

Remarks.

Introduced for Melania buccinoidea  sensu Briart & Cornet, 1873, "non Férussac” (actually it should read "non Olivier, 1801"). Junior homonym, as well as junior objective synonym of Melanopsis briarti  Cossmann, 1888. Obviously, Munier-Chalmas overlooked that the name had already been introduced for the very same misidentified taxon by Cossmann.
