status

 

* Euleptus peringueyi Csiky, 1931

Distribution in Angola (Provinces): 2) Huambo, Kwanza Sul.

Material examined. Caála (12° 51´11´´ S, 15° 33´07´´ E, 1758 m alt., 256) (HUAMBO), 3. XI.2015, 1 ♂, 6. XI.2015, 1 ♂, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps ; Calulo (9° 59´55´´ S, 14° 53´35´´ E, 999 m alt., 128) (BIÉ), 27.XI‒5. XII.2015, 1 ♀, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps .

Remarks. A species with a scattered known distribution ( Cameroon, Ivory Coast, D. R. of the Congo, South Africa and Mozambique) ( Basilewsky 1950b, Insectoid.info 2017). Adult specimens fit very well the original description (as albicornis Péringuey 1896), including the aedeagus (see Basilewsky 1950b, Fig. 6 View FIGURE 6 ). Adults were found on ground during night near public lights (e.g. for the first locality see C. rikatlensis remarks). It is a new species record for Angola.
