Melanopsis adrarensis Pallary, 1912 

Original source.

Pallary 1912: 16, figs 8-9.

Type locality.

"Dans les seguias des oasis du Touat, spécialement dans celles de l’Adrar” [in the irrigation channels of the oasis of Touat, especially those of Adrar], Algeria.


Given as “adparensis” on p. 16, but " adrarensis  " in plate captions. Since Pallary clearly denoted it from the locality Adrar, the name must be " adrarensis  " (Art. 32.5.1).
