status

 

Pachnoda rubriventris rubrocinctoides Ruter, 1958  

( Figs. 5d, e View FIGURE 5 )

Distribution: ANG, DOC.

Distribution in Angola (Provinces): 1)?; 2) MAL.

Historic records:

— Angola (without locality) ( Ruter 1958);

— Angola (without locality) ( Ferreira 1965 sub P. rubrocinctoides Ruter   ).

Material examined: Carima (Cacuso–Pungandongo) (09º 35´ 00´´ S, 15º 42´ 01´´ E, 1117 m alt., 130) ( MAL), 17–21.XI.2017, 1♂, CT, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps   .

Remarks. As the precedent subspecies, this was not reported for Angola by Beinhundner (2017a) and Schoolmeesters (2018). However, Ruter (1958) quotes with some doubt a female specimen of Angola deposited in “Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle de Paris” to this subspecies. The male specimen sampled in Carima ( Fig. 5d View FIGURE 5 ) fits very well the morphological description, including the parameres features ( Fig. 5e View FIGURE 5 ) indicated by Ruter (1958) (see also Rigout 1989). It was sampled by CT in an open secondary forest together with Chlorocala africana mutica ( Harold, 1878)   , Chondrorrhina (Chondrorrhina) picturata ( Harold, 1878)   and Tmesorrhina tridens Duvier, 1891   . Biological and ecological data are not available for this species. It is a new record for the Malanje Province.
