Type of listing: Entry in a Synonymy

Senior name:

Nerita (Adenerita) adenensis Mienis, 1978


Original Epithet:  aualitica
Status of Name: Nomen nudem 
Status of Name: Used as Valid Name [ "Selli (1973:285, footnote) mentioned that his new variety aualitica belongs to Nerita longi var . arabica but his figures indicate that he actually had specimens of Nerita adenensis . The var. aualitica was not described by Selli in 1946 and used as a synonym by Selli in 1973, so this name was never validated." ]      Dekker, H. 2000. p. 41
