haitensis Saussure, 1860: 363  -364 [ Julus  ].

Ile de St-Domingue. Two ♂.

The specimens were first ascribed to J. haitensis Gervais, 1847  but were recognized by Saussure & Humbert (1872: 176) to be a distinct species and the species was given the new replacement name Spirobolus dominguensis  . The pagination of the publication is faulty, and reads 563-564. The MHNG collection has one ♂ syntype in alcohol under the name Alcimbolus dominguensis  , erroneously labelled as the holotype by Mauriès in 1980. The whereabouts of the second syntype is unknown.

Ceylan (Peradenia?). Unspecified number of ♀.

The MHNG collection contains two specimens in alcohol in separate jars. One jar contains a broken ♀ specimen, with the main parts of the body in one vial and the second pair of legs in another. A label in the jar reads “ Spirostreptus hamifer Humb.  Type, Ceylan Voyage Humbert” indicating that it is a syntype. The second jar has a label indicating that the specimen was collected by Schneider, and it is therefore not a syntype.
