Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps ; Calulo (12° 13´20´´ S, 15° 32´57´´ E, 1512 m alt., 232) (KWANZA SUL), 27.XI‒5. XII.2015, 1 ♂, 1♀, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps .

Remarks. A species described on one specimen from Bailundo also (Huambo Province) ( Müller 1940) and widespread throughout western and central Africa ( Straneo 1952, 1991). The single male adult collected in the second locality was sampled by light trapping within an open secondary forest together with some other ground beetles (e.g. see S. angolense remarks). The remaining adults were found in activity on ground in the road edges during night, probably attracted to the public lights. It is a new record for the Bié and Kwanza Sul Provinces.
