Nola major var. monofascia van Son, 1933   , Annals of the Transvaal Museum 15: 214. Type locality: [ RSA] Transvaal, Pietersburg.

Material examined: Mozambique, Maputo Special Reserve. GoogleMaps   1 ♂, 22m, West Gate, Sand Forest   GoogleMaps , 26°30'14.2"S, 32°42'59.6"E, 3–13.XII.2016, Light Trap, Aristophanous, M., Cristovao, J., Laszlo, G., Miles, W. leg., slide No.:

(coll. ANHRT)   .

Remark. The species was known so far only from Transvaal. A short series of specimens of the species was collected in the Maputo Special Reserve is externally nearly identical with M. bispermutata   specimens, but obviously belong to M. monofascia   according to the genitalia morphology. The safe separation of M. monofascia   from M. bispermutata   requires genitalia dissection. New country record for Mozambique.
