Athalia flavobasalis Koch, 2007 

Athalia flavobasalis Koch, 2007: 87  . Locus typicus: Burundi, Munanira. Holotype: ♂. Burundi, Munanira [03°02'S 029° 25 'E], 2200 m, 01– 14.I. 1983, A. Autrique ( MNHN).

Ethiopian material. Lake Tana, Bahar Dar [11 ° 36 'N 037° 23 'E] (1 ♂, 1 ♀), leg. Schäuffele ( SMNS); Welega pr., 1260 m, 70 km S Nekemte [ca 08° 35 'N 036° 20 'E], 05.IV. 2007 (1 ♀), leg. J. Halada ( OLML); Sebeta, 08° 54 ’N 038° 35 ’E, 2165 m, 04.X. 2010, on Ajuga integrifolia  flower, P 3420 (1 ♀), leg. J.-L. Boevé & A. Pauly ( RBINS).

Distribution. Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Uganda.

Host plant. Brassicaceae ( Opitz et al. 2012)  .

Remarks. The species was abundantly collected from 1981 to 1983 with yellow pan traps placed in potato fields in Burundi ( Chevin 1985). Chevin (1985) misidentified the material as A. himantopus truncata  . Athalia truncata  differs from A. flavobasalis  by the entirely yellow metepimeron, and in the shape of the apically subtruncate digitus ( Koch 2007: fig. 9 b). The phenology of this species based on the material from Burundi is illustrated by Koch (2007), and it is concluded that the species is univoltine.
