Type locality.

Rossmässler, to whom Bourguignat referred, indicated the locality only as “Palästina” [Palestine]. As the species was explicitly introduced for Rossmässler’s material only this is the type locality.


Introduced for Melania costata  sensu Kobelt, 1880 (figs 1899-1900), non Olivier, 1804.
