Catascopus beauvoisi Laporte de Castelnau, 1835 

Distribution in Angola (Provinces): 1) Lunda Norte; 2) Kwanza Sul.

Material examined. Alto Ventura (Colé-Calulo) (09° 59´ 42´´ S, 14° 50´ 32´´ E, 1116 m alt., 128) (KWANZA SUL), 4.XII.2015, 1♂, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC.GoogleMaps 

Remarks. A species widespread throughout western, central and eastern Africa ( Guinea, Ivory Coast, Togo, Liberia, Benin, Cameroon, Angola, D. R. of the Congo, Malawi, Tanzania) ( Alves 1963, Insectoid.info 2017). The species was recorded for Angola by Alves (1963) (Dundo, Lunda Norte Province), but it was not given in Ferreira`s catalogue (1965). The single male collected near Calulo confirms its presence in Angola. The adult specimen was found under tree bark together with C. congolensis  (see also C. intermedius  remarks). It is a new record for the Kwanza Sul Province.
