Melanopsis daphnes Gaudry & P. Fischer in Gaudry, 1867 

Original source.

Gaudry 1862 - 1867: 407, pl. 62, figs 16-18.

Type horizon.

Late Miocene.

Type locality.

“Daphné”, Greece.

Remarks.

The species epithet is a noun in apposition and needs not to agree in gender with the generic name (Art. 31.2.1). The name “daphne” as mentioned in Neumayr (1869: 369) and Hoernes (1876: 16) is an incorrect subsequent spelling. Wenz (1929: 2772) considered the taxon as a junior synonym of Melanopsis longa  Deshayes in Férussac, 1839.
