Brot 1874 - 1879: 373, pl. 38, fig. 5c.

Type locality.

"Glina Fluss in Ungarn" [Glina river], Croatia.

Remarks.

Described and illustrated in synonymy of " Hemisinus Esperi  " [now in Esperiana  ], based on a manuscript name by Parreyss. Clessin (1890) treated it as valid name and made it available thereby (see Note 2). Junior homonym of Melanopsis turgida  Fischer-de-Waldheim, 1837. Starobogatov et al. (1992: 60) considered the species as a junior synonym of Fagotia  [= Esperiana  ] esperi  ( Férussac, 1823).
