status

 

Taxon classification Animalia Sorbeoconcha Melanopsidae

Melanopsis graellsii var. elatior Pallary, 1924 

Original source.

Pallary 1924: 250.

Type locality.

"Gandia (Valencia)", Spain.

Remarks.

Not available from Rossmässler (1854), to whom Pallary referred, because Rossmässler did not use the term “elatior” to denote a species-group taxon but only cited Férussac’s (1823) description of an unnamed variety of Melanopsis dufourii  . Pallary briefly described the taxon (by indicating its size) and therefore made the name available.
