Microcolpia pyramidalis Bourguignat, 1884 

Original source.

Bourguignat 1884: 61.

Type locality.

"Dans le Danube, où elle a été rencontrée çà et là depuis Buda-Pesth jusqu’à Ibraila; [...] Pregrada, près de Krapina, en Croatie" [in the Danube river, where it was found here and there between Budapest (Hungary) and Brăila (Romania); Pregrada, near Krapina (Croatia)].

Remarks.

Bourguignat (1884) referred to a publication by Lang (1823: 430) [not 1833 as stated by Brot 1879], who mentioned " Melanopsis pyramidalis  (mihi)" [nomen nudum] in a species list. Starobogatov et al. (1992: 65) considered the species as a junior synonym of Microcolpia acicularis  ( Férussac, 1823).
