paraensis Humbert& Saussure, 1870: 176  [ Spirostreptus  ].

Para. Unspecified series.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription of both sexes. No specimens found in the MHNG. The acquisitions register of the NHMW lists a single specimen (Acquisition number 1866.I.38) but no specimen can be located in the collection; the type material appears to be lost. Hoffman (1999: 36) considered that the original placement of this species as a member of the genus Spirostreptus  rather than Spirobolus  was probably a lapsus calami.

Rhinocricus paraensis ( Humbert & Saussure, 1870) 

Perse, Kotschy (Musée de Vienne). Unspecified series.

Attems (1898) redescribed this species and noted that the type specimens in the NHMW were in very bad condition and might not be useful. No specimens found in the MHNG. The NHMW contains six presumed syntypes, all of them broken but including a fragment with a pair of gonopods in situ (Inventory number 3574, Acquisition number 1866.I.215). The Acquisition Register lists the localities as “Karak insul” (Kharg Island) and “Sin. Pers.” but only enumerates five specimens.
