AbstractIn order to preserve the current use of the name Aegopinella nitidula (Drapamaud, 1805), going back to Rossmässler (1835), a neotype is proposed for this taxon. The specimen concerned is described in the present paper. Two alleged syntypes in the collection of Drapamaud, in the Naturhistorisches Museum, Vienna, are not accepted as syntypes because they represent two other species. The case is referred to the ICZN for a ruling.
