Melanopsis obliqua Bourguignat, 1884 

Original source.

Bourguignat 1884: 138.

Type locality.

"Le Bélus, près de Saint-Jean-d’Acre” [in the Na’aman river, near Acre], Israel.


Bourguignat (1884) denoted the authority as "Letourneux, 1882", but there is no evidence that the description really derived from that author.
