Material examined: , Uganda, Ruwenzori Range, Kilembe 4.000 ft. ; Dec. 1934 - Jan. 1935, F. W. Edwards, B. M. E. Afr. Exp. B. M. 1935-203; 1 , Kenya, Kakamega Forest 5.100 ft., 0°15'N 34°52'E GoogleMaps ; 1972-01-18 – 22, leg. C. F. Huggins, B. M. 1972-468. Male bears two identification labels which read “( Pyrellia )  bonnarius van Emden det. 1942” and “ Orthellia sp. nr. distincta, van Emden det. 1942”.

This subspecies of Curranosia spekei (JAENNICKE, 1867) has been reported from Democratic Republic of Congo and Kenya ( ZIELKE 1971a), as well as from South Africa and Tanzania ( PONT 1980). Uganda seems to be a new record for the species.
