Melanopsis nesici Brusina, 1893 

Original source.

Brusina 1893: 202 (Serbian part), 36 (Italian part).

Type horizon.

Pannonian, zone D–E, late Miocene.

Type locality.

“Ripanj”, Serbia.


Milan et al. (1974: 95) indicated collection numbers for “syntypes” illustrated in Brusina (1902), but it is uncertain whether the specimens were part of the original type series. They are stored in the Croatian Natural History Museum, Zagreb, coll. no. 2533-179/1-4.


The name “nesicii” as mentioned in Stepanović (1938) is an incorrect subsequent spelling.
