Melanopsis eocenica Pallary, 1916 

Original source.

Pallary 1916: 79.

Type horizon.

Sparnacian, early Ypresian, Eocene.

Type locality.

"Mont Bernon bei Epernay" (only this locality is the type locality as Pallary clearly referred to the specimen illustrated by Sandberger 1870 - 1875: pl. 9, fig. 5), France.

Remarks.

Introduced for Melania buccinoidea  sensu Sandberger, 1870. Wenz (1929: 2660) considered that record a junior synonym of Melanopsis antidiluviana  (Poiret, 1801). The name “eocaenica” as mentioned in Wenz (1929: 2662) is an incorrect subsequent spelling.
