Identification Reeve (1849; pl. 5 (Turritella), sp. 16a, b; pl. 1 (Mesalia & Eglisia), sp. 2a, b) unites under the name Mesalia brevialis (Lamarck, 1822) two different species, being the former and Mesalia mesal (Deshayes, 1843). He gives preperence to the Lamarckian name, and adds Le Mesal of Adanson, Turritella mesal Deshayes, 1843; Mesalia sulcata "Gray" [= subsequent recombinaltion of Turritella sulcata Lamarck, 1804] and Turritella varia Kiener, 1843 to its synonymy. All 4 figures provided by Reeve however, are clear Mesalia mesal (Deshayes, 1843). [details]

Nomenclature There are no types present at MNHN, Paris, and the drawings of Kiener leave room for interpretation. The description however fits Mesalia mesal (Deshayes, 1843). As such, Marche-Marchad's (1960:873-876) vision is followed here placing M. varia in synonymy of M. mesal [details]
