Abstract

As currently conceived, Helix cincta Muller, 1774, is widespread in the north-east Mediterranean from Italy to the Middle East. Recent phylogenetic research shows that it is not monophyletic and raises the question of which of its clades includes the true species of Muller. Unfortunately the type material no longer exists, the original description is defective and no precise type locality is available. To definitively clarify its identity, a neotype is designated according to Rossmassler's interpretation that it was mainly an Italian species.
