Epacmoides biumbonatus (Bezzi)  

Plesiocera biumbonata Bezzi   : 1922, 81.

Distribution. Namibia   *, South Africa (Eastern, Northern & Western Cape.

Material examined. 1♀, Klein­Aus­Vista, 26°41.00’S 16°13.08’E, 23.ix.2003, F.W. & S.K. Gess, general, 03/04/83 ( AMGS) GoogleMaps   .

Notes. Examination of the surviving syntype of E. biumbonatus   in Bezzi’s own collection showed that E. biumbonatus   of Hesse (1956) is a misidentification and that E. albifrons Hesse   is a synonym of E. biumbonatus Bezzi (Greathead & Evenhuis, 2004)   .
