Material examined. Alto Hama (12° 13´20´´ S, 15° 32´57´´ E, 1512 m alt., 232) (HUAMBO), 31.X.‒ 2. XI.2015, 1 ♀, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps ; Cachimbamba (12° 28´11´´ S, 15° 40´56´´ E, 1560 m alt., 232) (HUAMBO), 3. XI.2015, 1 ♀, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps .

Remarks. A common species widespread throughout Africa south of Sahara ( Ferreira 1965, Anichtchenko 2016), but also present in South America ( Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay) (Insectoid.info 2017) where was introduced probably by means of the nautical slave trade held between Africa (e.g. Luanda) and Brazil (e.g. Salvador) during the XVI‒XVII centuries. Adults were found on ground during night near public lights (first locality) together with some other ground beetles [e.g. S. guineense , C. intermedius , C. rikatlensis , C. cupreocinctus , C.. tenuicollis , Progonochaetus planicollis ( Putzeys, 1880) , Platymetopus pseudocrenulatus Facchini, 2016 , Agonidium natalense (Boheman, 1848) , Agonidium alacre (Boheman, 1848) , E. peringuey , E. intermedius ] or on soil beneath litter (second locality).
