Remarks. A species with a distribution in southern and eastern Africa ( Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique), but recorded also to Yemen (Insectoid.info 2017). Adult specimens fit well the descrition of this species, including the aedeagus conformation ( Basilewsky 1950b). Adults were found on ground during night near public lights (e.g. see comments on C. rikatlensis remarks). It is a new species record for Angola.
