Abstract
Since the 19th century, Cylindera (Oligomaparadoxa (W. Horn, 1892) has been recorded from only 10 locations in Sri Lanka, with only 2 of those recorded in the past 30 years. We recently found this species in the Keeragala estate (Ratnapura District) during field surveys. Our new record fills a gap in the knowledge of this species’ distribution in Sri Lanka.
