Abstract. In the local Universe,
large-scale double-lobed radio sources are almost always hosted by elliptical
galaxies. This is consistent with leading galaxy formation models that suggest
both elliptical galaxies and extended radio sources are the result of mergers.
These models do not allow for spiral galaxies to host large-scale double-lobed
radio sources. However, to-date, a handful of such sources have been observed
to exist in the local Universe, including the recently discovered J1649+2635.
We call these sources "spiral DRAGNs". I will give a summary of the known
properties of spiral DRAGNs, and discuss recent observational results focusing
