Diagnosis. This species has been adequately described by Drew & Romig (2013) except for some additional genitalia characters. Face with broad black band across oral margin, broken in the centre ( Fig. 31View FIGURES 31 – 39), scutum dark brown to black with yellow medial and lateral postsutural vittae ( Fig. 32View FIGURES 31 – 39); anepisternal stripe broad and reaching anterior notopleural seta ( Fig. 33View FIGURES 31 – 39), all femora with apical fuscous markings ( Fig. 35View FIGURES 31 – 39), abdomen with a narrow black transverse band on tergite III but devoid of a dark longitudinal medial vitta ( Fig. 34View FIGURES 31 – 39), wing with costal band confluent with R 2 + 3, slightly expanded beyond R 1 ( Fig. 36View FIGURES 31 – 39). The male genitalia of B. semongokensis  were examined: epandrium slightly shorter than lateral surstylus ( Fig. 37View FIGURES 31 – 39); posterior lobe of surstylus longer than anterior lobe; medial surstylus as long as lateral surstylus ( Fig. 38View FIGURES 31 – 39), aedeagus sclerotised with well developed patterned acrophallus, praeputium, trumpet-shaped basal lobe and short subapical lobe ( Fig. 39View FIGURES 31 – 39).
