scientific name

Melanopsis entzi Brusina, 1902
status

 

Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Melanopsis entzi Brusina, 1902 

Original source.

Brusina 1902: pl. 6, figs 34-37.

Type horizon.

Transdanubian, Pannonian, late Miocene.

Type locality.

"Tihany; Kenese" [Tihany; Balatonkenese], Hungary.

Types.

Milan et al. (1974: 90) defined a “lectosyntypus”, a term not accepted by the Code, based on the specimen from Tihany illustrated by Brusina (1902: pl. 6, figs 34 -36). This fixation is insufficient for a valid lectotype designation (Art. 74). The specimen is stored in the Croatian Natural History Museum, Zagreb, coll. no. 2515-161/1-2.

Remarks.

Bartha (1955: 294) considered this taxon as a junior synonym of Melanopsis fuchsi  Handmann, 1882.
