Melanopsis pyrguloeformis " mentioned in Hermite (1879: 184) [unavailable]
status

 

Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

† " Melanopsis pyrguloeformis " mentioned in Hermite (1879: 184) [unavailable] 

Horizon.

Early Eocene.

Locality.

"De Binisalem et de Selva" [from Binissalem and Selva, Mallorca], Spain.

Remarks.

Nomen nudum. Given as " Melania pyrguloeformis  " on p. 328. The name was probably intended as “pyrgulaeformis”, but the ligature was mixed up during typesetting. Hermite listed the name in a section called “Espèces nouvelles citées et non décrites” [= "new species identified and not described"], where he listed 18 new names that he intended to describe in the second volume of his “Études géologiques sur les îles Baléares”. That part, however, has never been published, probably because Hermite died in 1880.
