Remarks.

To this species in part refers the generic quotation of “Chilopodes” published in Rémy (1950: 6, 7, 27) from the cave of Brando (collection date 1942) previously published by Verhoeff (1943), as well as those from the cave of Sulane and, partly, from the cave of Cherpinede (both collected in 1948), both later published by Manfredi (1956).
