laticaudatus Humbert & Saussure, 1870: 175-176 [ Spirostreptus  ].

Brasilia. Unspecified series.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription of the ♂ only, stating that the specimen(s) had been collected by Natterer. No specimens found in the MHNG. The NHMW contains a single ♂ type specimen with the gonopods intact (Inventory number 2166, Acquisition number 1866.I.50) collected by Natterer. The Acquisition Register shows that the lot contained only one specimen, so this can be considered the holotype. Hoffman (1999: 36) considered the original placement of this species in the genus Spirostreptus  instead of Spirobolus  was a lapsus calami. The generic placement is uncertain.
