d'Orbigny (1850) considered Melanopsis rugosa Matheron, 1843 and Melania rugosa Lea, 1842 to belong in Melania and introduced Melania subrugosa as replacement name. Although none of both taxa belong in Melania (= Thiara), the name by Matheron is permanently invalid because it was replaced before 1961 (Art. 59.3). The original combination is however retained.
