Fig. 10D– FView FIGURE 10

Kraepelin 1929: 90 (as Daesia habereri  n. sp.)

Type locality: Ein ♀ aus dem Schari-Gebiet, gesammelt von Prof. Haberer. Typus im Zool. Museum Hamburg  .

Dimensions. Körperlänge 14,5mm. [10.33; 13.50]

Oldest label. Daesia habereri Krpln  , ♀ Typus!, Haberer l., Shari-Geb. (Kraepelin handwriting).

Additional label. Inner-Afrika-Expedition d. Herzogs Adolf Friedrich zu Mecklenburg 1910–1911. Shari- Gebiet. Prof. Dr. Haberer leg.

Type material. Holotype ♀ (ZMH-A0000167).

Collection remarks. Harvey (2003) lists Shari in Algeria as the type locality but this may be a misinterpretation. Herzog Adolf Friedrich zu Mecklenburg and his team actually travelled to Lake Chad and the northern rivers of Congo and Nile in current Sudan and the label information matches the travel period.

Mecklenburg and his team aimed to explore the primeval forest region of the Congo tributaries and the basin of Lake Chad. The travel reports published in 1912 (‘Vom Kongo zum Niger und Nil’) provide an account to this expedition ( Mecklenburg 1912). The type locality likely is the area surrounding the Chari River south of Lake Chad in the Chad, not Algeria.

Current systematic position. Biton (Biton) habereri ( Kraepelin 1929)  .
