Diagnosis

Manzuma tanzanica   is most similar to M. jocquei   , M. lympha   and M. nigritibia   in body coloration. The males can be distinguished from M. jocquei   and M. lympha   by the poorly developed apical projection (well developed in M. jocquei   ) (cf. Figs 190, 192 View Figs 188–193 , 57–58 View Figs 52–59 , 64 View Figs 60–71 and 109, 111 View Figs 107–116 correspondingly); from M. nigritibia   it can be distinguished by the coloration of the clypeus and cheeks. The upper half of cheeks under ALEs are covered with short brown scales and the basal half of cheeks covered with long white hairs ( Figs 196–197 View Figs 194–199 ) while in M. nigritibia   the clypeus has a diamond-shaped patch of brown hairs between AME and on upper half of clypeus and the cheeks covered with long white hairs from ALEs to margin of carapace ( Figs 145, 147 View Figs 143–153 ).

Etymology

The specific epithet is named after the country of origin, Tanzania.
