Remarks. The nominal species is known only from Angola ( Basilewsky 1977, 1986b). Probably is the most common and widespread Graphipterus   species in Angola. Adults were found in footpaths and country roads within open secondary forests running quickly when disturbed to hide beneath the litter. They are syntopic with some tiger and ground beetles, changing the species in accordance with the locality.
