Kraepelin 1908b: 273, fig. 4 (as Daesia betschuanica  n. sp.)

Type locality and specimens. Als Fundort ist Lobatsi bei Mafeking , Britisch-Betschuanaland , angegeben. Diese neue Art, von der leider nur 2 ♂ erbeutet wurden.... 

Dimensions. Die Länge des Truncus beträgt 17 mm. [12.09; 15,66]

Oldest label. Daesia betschuanica Krpl, Co-Typus  ♂, L. Schultze l., c. IV.08, Lobatsi , Mafeking, Brit. Betschuanaland. 

Additional label. Biton betschuanicus (Krpl.)  , 1♂ —Typus—Mafeking, revid. 1931, Roewer—No. 8233 (Roewer handwriting).

Type material. Lectotype ♂ designated here (ZMH-A0000171).

Taxonomic remarks. There is one male syntype in the ZMBAbout ZMB collections (catalog no.15512)  . No original label with locality data is present in the vial, just the label by Roewer and a label possibly handwritten by Kraepelin that has the species name only. The ZMBAbout ZMB male was examined, it is smaller in size, and should be regarded as paralectotype  .

Collection remarks. The type locality is the town of Lobatse in South-eastern Botswana. Again, this species was collected by Schulze during his 1903–1905 expedition. 

Current systematic position. Daesiidae  , Biton (Biton) betschuanicus ( Kraepelin 1908b)  .
