Locality.

"De la Save et de la Savina; [...] du Danube, près de Belgrade (Serbie), de Zenica (Bosnie), de la rivière d’Ostaria et d’un ruisseau sur là route de Pregrada, non loin de Krapina-Toeplitz, en Croatie; [...] au pont de la Save, près d’Agram” [in the Sava and Savinja rivers (Croatia, Slovenia); [...] Danube river near Belgrade (Serbia), Zenica (Bosnia and Herzegovina), in the river at Oštarije and a stream at the road to Pregrada, near Krapinske toplice (Croatia); [...] at the Sava bridge near Zagreb].

Remarks.

The name "Var. elegans  " as mentioned by Rossmässler (1839) is a nomen nudum, referring to the personal opinion of Schmidt, with whom Rossmässler collected the material. If available, it would be a junior objective synonym of Melanopsis holandrii legitima  Rossmässler, 1839, under which " elegans  " was listed as a synonym by Rossmässler.
