? Pelmatojulus sp.

Porat (1894) recorded Spirobolus pulvillatus Newport, 1844 , from several sites in Cameroon. However, Porat’s concept of this species was very broad. One sample of Porat’s material is preserved in the Swedish Museum of Natural History and has been restudied by HE, but could not be identified to species.
