Remarks.

First of all, the name as given by Pérès (1939) is a nomen nudum - Pérès apparently considered the expression " curta  " self-explanatory and did not describe it. Moreover, he obviously used the name not as separate taxon but rather as descriptive term to fit existing species into his morphological concept. He even indicated Melanopsis brevis  Morelet, 1857 as its “type”.
