Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Melania holandri var. laevigata Rossmaessler, 1839 

Original source.

Rossmässler 1838 - 1844: Heft 4 (10), 37, pl. 50, figs 664-667.

Type locality.

"Gradaschza und Ringelsza [bei Laibach]; aus einem Mühlbache bei Nassenfuss in Unterkrain" [in Gradaščica and Ringelsza (?) brooks near Ljubljana; from a mill creek near Mokronog] (the remaining localities mentioned cannot be assigned to the present variety without doubt), Slovenia.


Note that Rossmässler (1839) seems to have listed Melania holandri  in synonymy of this variety, but from the text it is clear that the list is intended to refer to the species as a whole.
