Remarks. A subspecies with a wide distribution ( Ferreira 1965; Sakai & Nagai 1998; Beinhundner 2017a). Some adult specimens (Satchijamba, Carima, Pungo Andongo and Calulo) were collected by CT (e.g. Fig. 1b View FIGURE 1 ). See remarks under Pachnoda discolour kolbei   and Pachnoda rubriventris rubrocinctoides   , respectively for Satchijamba and Carima localities. In Calulo, the adults were sampled in a secondary moist forest together with Lophorrhina quinquelineata (Fabricius, 1781)   and Tmesorrhina laeta burgeoni Allard, 1991   . Ecological data were provided by Holm & Marais (1992) for C. africana subsuturalis   . It is a new species record for the Bié, Huíla, Kwanza Sul and Malanje Provinces.
