Melanopsis noetlingi Bourguignat in Noetling, 1886 

Original source.

Noetling 1886: 817, pl. 23, fig. 6.

Type locality.

"Aus dem Jarmūk bei el Hammi [...] auch bei el-Hāwijān [fossil]" [from the Yarmuk river at Al Ḩammah and as fossil near Jisr al Ḩāwī], Jordan.

Remarks.

Noetling clearly referred to “Bourguignat’s new species", which is why the authority should read as "Bourguignat in Noetling, 1886". Heller and Sivan (2002b: 615) considered the taxon as a junior synonym of Melanopsis multiformis  Blanckenhorn, 1897. Heller et al. (2005: 247) in turn treated it as a junior synonym of Melanopsis obliqua  Bourguignat, 1884.
