Remarks.

This species was described by Sharp from Nagasaki, Japan. Zimmerman (1956) compared the series of Trachyphloeosoma setosum   Wollaston, 1869 from St. Helena with Sharp´s material of T. roelofsi   from Japan and found the two series represent only one species and placed them in synonymy. However, Morimoto (2015) resurrected the name T. roelofsi   as an independent species, and distinguished it from T. setosus   Wollaston from St. Helena. Trachyphloeosoma roelofsi   is thus known from Japan and Taiwan, while T. setosus   is assumed as a species introduced to St. Helena without knowledge of its original country.
