Melanopsis mingrelica Mousson, 1863 

Original source.

Mousson 1863: 411.

Type locality.

"De l’intérieur de la Mingrélie [...], puis de Réduktaleh” [from the interior of Samegrelo; from Q’ulevi (also read as Kulevi, former Redut-Kale)], Georgia.


Mousson attributed the authority to Bayer, but there is no evidence that the description really derived from that author. Bayer only seems to have collected a part of the material.
