Anisolabididae  , Anisolabidinae  , Gonolabis tanganyikae ( Brindle, 1964)  .

Remarks

1. Transferred by Steinmann (1978: 193).

2. The date of the holotype does not match that given for the material examined by Brindle in the original description, i.e., ‘26.ii.57 (holotype, allotype)’, although the rest of the locality data matches. There is no reference to female paratypes examined except the allotype. The female specimens F3233.1317– 1319 have ‘Paratype’ on Brindle’s determination labels.
