Melanopsis cepula Guppy, 1866 

Original source.

Guppy 1866: 580, pl. 26, fig. 14.

Type horizon.

Late Miocene.

Type locality.

“Cumana”, Venezuela.

Remarks.

Given as “capula” on p. 580, but as " cepula  " in the plate captions. Guppy (1867) acted as First Reviser and fixed the correct original spelling as " cepula  " (Art. 24.2.3, 32.2.1). Guppy (1867) did not consider the species a melanopsid anymore and introduced the new genus Crepitacella  ( Rissoinidae  ) with Melanopsis cepula  as type species.
