Anasillomos sp.  

(Fig. 19)

Anasillomos   is presently monotypic. One of us ( TD) collected four females in southern Namibia, which are distinct from A. chrysopos   . The lack of males decided us against describing the species. It is certain that more collecting in Botswana, Namibia, and western South Africa will provide additional specimens and probably increase the number of species. Apart from mapping the locality of these females in Fig. 19, no further reference to the material is made.

Material examined: NAMIBIA: 4♀ , Karas Region, Ai-Ais Nature Reserve [27°30'S 17°50'E], NW of Grünau (road D 601), 9.xii.1999, T. Dikow ( NMSA) GoogleMaps   .
