Rhodesiana maculata Dirsh, 1959 

( Figs. 3GView FIGURE 3, 4EView FIGURE 4, 7HView FIGURE 7, 15View FIGURE 15)

Rhodesiana maculata Dirsh. 1959:27  ; Dirsh. 1965: 272; Johnston, 1968:200.

Type locality. Africa, South Tropical Africa , Zimbabwe, Beit Bridge. No type examined  .

Material. SOUTH AFRICA: Limpopo: Langjan (S22.8421, E29.2430) 27.ii.1988 coll. K. Kappmeier— 1♂ ( SANC)GoogleMaps  .

Distribution. This is the first record of the genus in South Africa.

Remarks. This genus was erected by Dirsh (1959), based on its transverse depression on pronotum. It is similar to Anabibia Dirsh 1956  but strongly differs in the shape of male cercus, posterior margin of pronotum (in Anabibia  is rounded), shape of supra-anal plate (in Anabibia  is tuberculate) and also by the shape of epiphallus. The shape of its male cercus is similar to that of Euryphymus Stål 1873  which is also short. Revision is not necessary for this genus.
