Remarks. A species with a distribution throughout Angola, D. R. of the Congo, Zimbabwe, Tanzania ( Zanzibar) and Mozambique (Straneo 1942, 1952). In the first locality the adult specimen was found in a wall during night near a public light. In the second locality, the adult was collected within the litter which covered the soil and, in the third locality, the adults were found under bark of trees together with adults of other Coleoptera families (e.g. Endomychidae , Trogossitidae , Tenebrionidae ). It is a new record for the Malanje and Kwanza Sul Provinces.
