Melanopsis dircaeana Pallary, 1939 

Original source.

Pallary 1939: 87, pl. 6, figs 31-35.

Type locality.

Unclear: given as "Dans l’Oronte” [in the Orontes river] in text but as "Du lac de Homs" [Lake Homs (through which the Orontes flows)] in plate captions, Syria.


The name “dircaena” as mentioned in Heller et al. (2005: 238) is an incorrect subsequent spelling.
