Material examined. Caála (12° 51´ 11´´ S, 15° 33´ 07´´ E, 1758 m alt., 256) (HUAMBO), 4. XI.2015, 1 ♀, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps   ; Catata-Nova Monção (13° 25´ 59´´ S, 15° 21´ 22´´ E, 1607 m alt., 279) (HUAMBO), 6. XI.2015, 1 ♀, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps   ; Catota (2,5 km S) (14° 00° 37´´ S, 17° 24° 00´´ E, 1532 m alt., 323) (BIÉ), 8‒17. XI.2015, 1 ♀, PF, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps   .

Remarks. A species known from South Africa R. and Zimbabwe ( Basilewsky 1950b, Insectoid.info 2017). Adult specimens fit well the original description ( Péringuey 1896). Adults of the first locality were found on ground during night near public lights (e.g. see C. rikatlensis   remarks) and in the second locality beneath litter within an open secondary forest (e.g. see comments on S. vilhenai   remarks), respectively. The Catota adult specimen was collected by pitfall trapping together with other ground beetles (see S. wrasei   remarks). It is a new species record for Angola.
