Material examined. Cambamba (Catoio-Quela) (09° 14´ 42´´ S, 17° 00´ 33´´ E, 1178 m alt., 115) (MALANJE), 20.XI.2015, 1♂, 1♀, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps   ; Calulo (Faz.

Remarks. A species known from central, southern and part of eastern Africa (D. R. of the Congo, Souh Africa R., Burundi, Zimbabwe) ( Basilewsky 1950b, Insectoid.info 2017). Adults fit very well its description, including the aedeagus features ( Péringuey 1904, Basilewsky 1950b). Adult specimens were found within litter in an open secondary forest and in a secondary rainforest together with some other tiger and ground beetles (see S. vilhenai   and O. gilvipes   remarks for first and second localities, respectively). It is a new species record for Angola.
