Lansbergia Ritsema, 1888


Genus Lansbergia Ritsema, 1888 

The genus was revised by Krajcik (2001), but there is some controversy on the number of valid species (see Drumont 2001). This author, taking into account the Krajcik’s (2001) work, registered four species. However, curiously Krajcik’s catalogue (2008a) recognized only two species, and the Masoe Péringuey, 1896 and Trapezorrhina Hauser, 1904 subgenera are considered synonyms of Lansbergia  . Later Beinhundner (2013) added one new subspecies to Lansbergia (Trapezorrhina) sordida Hauser, 1904  , a species synonymized with L. albonotata (Péringuey, 1885)  by Krajcik (2008a). Whatever the number of species considered valid, one of them occurs in Angola ( Lansberge 1886; Ferreira 1965; Krajcik 2008a).
