Remarks.

Replacement name for Melanopsis sinzowi  Lörenthey, 1902, non Brusina, 1885. Papp (1953b: 145) considered the taxon as a junior synonym of Melanopsis rarispina  Lörenthey, 1902. However, Papp (1953b) gave the older names Melanopsis bouei spinosa  Handmann, 1882 and Melanopsis bouei ventricosa  Handmann, 1882 in synonymy of Melanopsis rarispina  . While ventricosa  Handmann is a homonym of Melanopsis ventricosa  Neumayr, 1880 and thus invalid, the name spinosa  is available and has priority over rarispina  .
