Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Melanopsis nodosa var. moderata Mousson, 1874 

Original source.

Mousson 1874: 48.

Type locality.

Not explicitly stated but probably the same as for the species ("Au cours de l’Euphrate et du Tigre" [from the Euphrates and Tigris rivers], Iraq).

Remarks.

Brot (1874 - 1879: 432) considered the taxon as a junior synonym of Melanopsis nodosa  Férussac, 1822, which is actually a fossil species described from the Miocene of France.
