Original source.

Bourguignat 1884: 120.

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.

Remarks.

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