Type locality and habitat.

Democratic Republic of Congo (as Zaire), Lemba, Mayumbe, on longhorn beetle, Ancylonotus tribulus  ( Coleoptera  , Cerambycidae  ). Cameroon and Gabon (paratypes).

Comparative material.

Democratic Republic of Congo: 2 ♀♀ ( MRAC: 142495, holotype; MRAC: 170349, paratype) - 5. 5. 1970, Lemba, Ancylonotus tribulus  , leg. P. Elsen. Gabon: 2 ♀♀ ( MRAC: 142504, 170348, paratypes) - Oct. 1913, Libreville, Crocisa meripes  , leg. G. Babault.

Remarks.

Given that the characteristics of the type specimens of Ameroseius gabonensis  are within the range of variability found in Ameroseius leclercqi  Elsen, 1973, I suspect A. gabonensis  to be a synonym of A. leclercqi  .
