Melanopsis eumorphia Bourguignat, 1884 

Original source.

Bourguignat 1884: 146.

Type locality.

"Dans le Jourdain, à 4 kilomètres au-dessus de la Mer Morte" [in the Jordan river, 4 km above the Dead Sea], Palestine/Jordan.

Remarks.

Apparently by mistake, Heller et al. (2005: 245, 247) listed the species in synonymy of Melanopsis lampra  Bourguignat, 1884 as well as of Melanopsis obliqua  Bourguignat, 1884, both of which they ranked as subspecies of Melania costata  (Olivier, 1804).
