Comment(s) on data
MNHN-IU-2013-4260, st. GM06, JL252-2 erroneously attributed to M. trispinosum, corrected J. Poupin in M. diplacanthum based on bifid posterolateral spine, MNHN December 2015.
Macrocoeloma trispinosum variety - Rathbun, 1924: 21, Curaçao [coll. C.J. van der Horst, 1920]. - Rathbun, 1925: 468, pl. 168, fig. 1, St Thomas, Curaçao [This form links the subspecies nodipes to the typical trispinosum]. This seems to be M. nodipes.
