Comments: the holotype is a female which was not studied. According to Karsch (1881), this species is 215 mm long, with 57 rings, and it was collected in Nosy Be, an island off northwest Madagascar. No Spirobolida  species longer than 200 mm is currently known from Madagascar. Of large-bodied genera, both Aphistogoniulus  (Wesen- er et al. 2009) and Colossobolus  species (undescribed) can be found in Nosy Be.
