Diagnosis

Manzuma jocquei   is most similar in body coloration to M. lympha   , M. nigritibia   and M. tanzanica   . The males can be distinguished from M. tanzanica   by the well developed apical projection (ApP) (poorly developed in M. tanzanica   ) (cf. Figs 57–58 View Figs 52–59 , 64 View Figs 60–71 and 190, 192 View Figs 188–193 correspondingly). From M. lympha   is can be distinguished by more robust ApP pointed dorsally in M. jocquei   ( Figs 55 View Figs 52–59 , 64 View Figs 60–71 ) while in M. lympha   ApP smaller in size and pointed ventrally ( Fig. 111 View Figs 107–116 ). From M. nigritibia   it can be distinguished by the coloration of the clypeus and cheeks. The upper half of the cheeks under ALEs are covered with short brown scales and the basal half of the cheeks are covered with long white hairs ( Figs 75–77 View Figs 72–82 ) while in M. nigritibia   the clypeus has a diamond-shaped patch of brown hairs between AME and on the upper half of clypeus, the cheeks are covered with long white hairs from ALEs to margin of carapace ( Figs 145, 147 View Figs 143–153 ). The females cannot be distinguished from M. lympha   and M. nigritibia   but can be distinguished from M. botswana   gen. et sp. nov. and M. petroae   gen. et sp. nov. by the absence of white stripes of scales running from the outer rim of AME’s to the lateral sides of carapace (cf. Figs 82 View Figs 72–82 , 129 View Figs 117–130 , 152 View Figs 143–153 , 44 View Figs 37–45 and 180 View Figs 168–181 correspondingly).

Comments

The female from Central African Republic is provisionally assigned to Manzuma jocquei   gen. et comb.nov. This female seems to belong to another, undescribed Manzuma   species occurring in Central Africa. Males collected together with the females from Central Africa are required to resolve this problem.
