Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy T. (Dunkeria) jeffreysii (Jeffreys, 1848) and T. jeffreysii (Forbes & Hanley, 1851) are the same name and should date to Forbes & Hanley, 1850. To make things more cmplicated, F&H introduced this name as a synonym ("a manuscript name commonly seen") of Melania scalaris Philippi, 1836 without knowing that this is a primary homonym of Melania scalaris Spix 1827 and therefore cannot be used. But the Code says that a name introduced as a synonym is validated (with original author and date) ONLY if it has been taken as the valid name or as a senior homonym, in some publication before 1960. All XIX century authors (including Jeffreys himself) used scalaris, and salvation came as usual from Winckworth's (1932) list of British mollusca where he validated jeffreysii. Then, there is the name Chemnitzia jeffreysii Thompson, 1850 which is for the same species but based on specimens from Ireland, but this is not described (nomen nudum). The subgenus Dunkeria is not used for this species. [details]
