Maximilian Spinola was a descendant of the famous Spanish General Ambrogio Spinola, marqués de los Balbases (1569-1630) and much of his wealth derived from land held in Spain and South America.

Spinola's Coleoptera, Hymenoptera, Heteroptera and Homoptera can be viewed at the Museo Regionale di Scienze Naturali (Turin), Italy. Most of his Types are extant and in good condition.
