caicarae Humbert & Saussure, 1870: 174 [ Spirostreptus  ].

Brasilia. Unspecified series.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription of the ♀ only, identified the type locality Caicara and stated that the specimen(s) had been collected by Natterer. No specimens found in the MHNG. There is one ♀ type specimen collected by Natterer in the NHMW (Inventory number 2439, Acquisition number 1866.I.47). The Acquisition Register shows that the lot contained only one specimen, so this can be considered the holotype. The locality probably refers to a fazenda on the Paraguay River where Natterer stayed between October 1825 and June 1826 ( Schmutzer, 2007). The generic placement is uncertain.
