Examples of "bourguignat"
recorded from Siberia as "Carychium striolatum" J.R. Bourguignat, 1857 (synonym)
The genus "Anceya" was dedicated to him by Jules René Bourguignat.
"Melania truncatelliformis" Bourguignat, 1889 may be a synonym of "Melanoides nyassana".
Bourguignat named and described many genera and species of mollusks, including:
This species was described under the name "Helix camelina" from today's Lebanon by Jules René Bourguignat in 1852.
Jules René Bourguignat (1829 - 1892) named this species in honor of the Marquis Giacomo Doria, an Italian naturalist, herpetologist, and politician.
Also for names of species new replacement names are often necessary. New replacement names have been proposed since more than 100 years ago. In 1859 Bourguignat saw that the name "Bulimus cinereus" Mortillet, 1851 for an Italian snail could not be used because Reeve had proposed exactly the same name in 1848 for a completely different Bolivian snail. Since it was understood even then that the older name has always priority, Bourguignat proposed a new replacement name "Bulimus psarolenus", and also added a note why this was necessary. The Italian snail is known until today under the name "Solatopupa psarolena" (Bourguignat, 1859).
Often, the older name cannot be used because another animal was described earlier with exactly the same name. For example, Lindholm discovered in 1913 that a generic name "Jelskia" established by Bourguignat in 1877 for a European freshwater snail could not be used because another author Taczanowski had proposed the same name in 1871 for a spider. So Lindholm proposed a new replacement name "Borysthenia". This is an objective synonym of "Jelskia" Bourguignat, 1877, because he has the same type species, and is used today as "Borysthenia".
According to Welter-Schultes "Balea heydeni" is conspecific with "Balea sarsii". The name "heydenii" has now been superseded as the species was described from Norway at an earlier date than von Maltzan, under the name "sarsii" Pfeiffer (synonym "lucifuga" Bourguignat 1857).
Jules René Bourguignat (19 August 1829, Brienne-Napoléon, Aube – 7 April 1892) was a French malacologist, a scientist who studied mollusks. He served as secretary-general of the "Société malacologique de France". During his lifetime, he traveled widely, visiting, for example, Lake Tanganyika and North Africa. He reportedly defined 112 new genera and around 2540 new species of mollusks.
Fagot was part of a "New School" of naturalists, which included Jules-René Bourguignat, Aristide-Horace Letourneux, Jules François Mabille, and Étienne Alexandre Arnould Locard. Species of land snails that were named and described by Fagot include "Aegopinella epipedostoma", "Pyrenaearia navasi", and "Pyrenaearia cotiellae".
Born in Lyon, he was the son of engineer Eugene Locard. He was a student at École Centrale Paris. He is considered one of the more prolific malacologists of the so-called "new school" with Jules René Bourguignat (1828–1892) as his master.
The first species from the Turkish terrestrial malacofauna were described by Guillaume-Antoine Olivier (1756–1814), who, amongst others, collected natural history objects in the Middle East. For example he named the following species: "Multidentula ovularis" (Olivier, 1801) and "Bulgarica denticulata" (Olivier, 1801) from "Ghemlek" (= Gemlik in the Bay of Mudanya) or "Assyriella guttata" (Olivier, 1804) from Urfa. After Olivier, the area was visited by the German Johannes Rudolf Roth and his party, and then was target of other scientists, naturalists and collectors like Bellardi, Boissier, Dubois de Montpereux, Frivaldsky, Huet de Pavillon, Parreyss, Schläfli, Sievers and others. Their collections went to the most prolific malacologists interested in the area like Jules René Bourguignat, Jean de Charpentier, Heinrich Carl Küster, Johann Rudolf Albert Mousson, Ludwig Karl Georg Pfeiffer and Emil Adolf Rossmässler. In the second half of the 19th century, the famous German malacologists Oskar Boettger and Wilhelm Kobelt from the Senckenberg Museum in Frankfurt intensified the malacological research in Turkey, with contributions by Gottfried Nägele, Otto von Retowski and Carl Agardh Westerlund. After Kobelt’s death in 1916, the "Golden Age" of malacology was finished except for some contributions by Paul Hesse, Wassili Adolfovitch Lindholm and Otto W. von Rosen. After almost 50 years of scientific silence, it was the "Netherlands biological expedition to Turkey 1959", which again shifted the focus of malacologists to Turkey. Since then, the malacological science received an enormous boost and stimulated both international as well as Turkish scientists to deepen the knowledge of the Turkish malacofauna. During this period, which now lasts about 50 years, one third of the number of taxa accepted today as valid has been added!
