status

 

Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Melanopsis (Martinia) martiniana var. rugosa Handmann, 1887 [invalid] 

Original source.

Handmann 1887: 26, pl. 5, figs 5-7.

Type horizon.

Pannonian, zone B–D, late Miocene.

Type locality.

“Leobersdorf”, Austria.

Types.

It is uncertain whether the single specimen from Wittmannsdorf near Leobersdorf stored in the Geological Survey Austria, Vienna, is really the only specimen left of the original type series (i.e., holotype by monotypy), as was considered by Fischer (1996b: 23). The statement by Fischer (1996b) did not suffice for a valid lectotype designation.

Remarks.

Junior homonym of Melanopsis rugosa  Matheron, 1842. Neubauer et al. (2014c: 17) introduced Melanopsis wolfgangfischeri  as replacement name.
