( Fig. 13View FIGURE 13 A –B)

Athalia scioensis Gribodo, 1879: 342  . Locus typicus: Ethiopia, Scioa, Mahal-Uonz. Lectotype hereby designated by F. Koch: ♂. Scioa, Mahal-Uonz [09° 34 'N 039° 54 'E], III. 1877, Antinori. ( MCSN). Paralectotype: 1 ♀ from the same locality ( MCSN).

Additional Ethiopian material. Sebeta, 08° 54 ’N 38 ° 35 ’E, 2165 m, 04.X. 2010, P 3418 (1 ♀), leg. J.-L. Boevé & D. N. Wayassa; Abijata Shala N. P., 07° 29 ’N 038° 40 ’E, 1635 m, 17–25.IX. 2012, with yellow pan trap, P 3620 B (1 ♂), leg. J.-L. Boevé & A.

Pauly ( RBINS).

Distribution. Ethiopia.

Host plant. Unknown. The female from Sebeta was analysed chemically in the search for remaining plant metabolites sequestered at larval stage, but no typical metabolites could be detected ( Opitz et al. 2012). Remarks. The wrong synonymy with A. fumosa  proposed by Benson (1962) is discussed under this species.
