Notes
Coan & Kabat, 2012 state: This was a garbled treatment of Melania variabilis Benson, 1836. Leeds Museum 1957.173.1863, figured syntype. Leeds material does not have a Hanley label, there is reference to the species in Hanley's handwritten catalogue, but there is no mention of 'type'. The specimen bears a likeness to the figured specimen in the citation.
