kelaarti Humbert, 1865: 23  -25, pl. 2, fig. 7 [ Polydesmus  ].

Trincomalie. Unspecified series.

Humbert mentioned a number of varieties, but did not name them. Carl (1902) made reference to “die kleinsten Originalexemplare”. Carl (1932) discussed the variation in the species. The MHNG collection contains three card-mounted specimens and three in alcohol under the name Prionopeltis kelaarti  . The dry specimens are each labelled “Ceylan, Vge Humbert” while the jar contains the label “ Polydesmus kelaarti Humb.  (Type) Peradenia, Ceylan, Voyage Humbert.” The gonopods of one of the specimens in alcohol, identified by a label “Gonopodes” in the vial, were illustrated by Carl (1932: 464, figs 65- 67) as the “Type”. Although the locality given for the alcohol specimens does not match the one in the original description, all of these specimens are probably syntypes. There are many other specimens in alcohol under the name Anoplodesmus kelaarti  but these were collected by Carl after the publication of the original description and are therefore not syntypes. The generic placement follows de Zoysa et al. (2016).
