scientific name

Melanopsis pedemontana subcallosa Wenz, 1928
status

[invalid]

Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

† Melanopsis pedemontana subcallosa Wenz, 1928  [invalid]

Original source.

Wenz 1928b: 220.

Type horizon.

Late Burdigalian, early Miocene.

Type locality.

"Colle torinesi" ( Sacco 1889: 68) [Torino hills], Italy.

Remarks.

Invalid replacement name for the homonym Melanopsis taurinensis  Sacco, 1889, non Melanopsis clava taurinensis  Sacco, 1889 (same work). According to Art. 24.1 and 57.7 the name proposed at higher rank takes precedence. This makes subcallosa  an objective synonym of Melanopsis taurinensis  Sacco, 1889, while the subspecies Melanopsis clava taurinensis  Sacco, 1889 is still in need of a substitute name.
