Melanopsis trifasciata Gray in Dieffenbach, 1843 

Original source.

Gray in Dieffenbach 1843: 263.

Type locality.

"New Zealand, Bay of Islands, Waitanga Falls", New Zealand.

Remarks.

Originally the gender was indicated as masculine ( “trifasciatus”), but Melanopsis  is feminine, which is why the name must be " trifasciata  ". Type species of Zemelanopsis  Finlay, 1926. The name “bifasciata” as mentioned in Pallary (1926a: 76) is an incorrect subsequent spelling.
