16d. Craspedophorus strachani monardi Basilewsky, 1951 

( Plate 1View PLATE 1, Figs 7–9, Plate 12View PLATE 12, Fig. 93)

Craspedophorus strachani monardi Basilewsky, 1951a: 385  (type locality “Cameroun: Ngaouyanga [=Cameroon, North]”), 1951b: 206. Lorenz 2005: 321, Häckel and Farkač 2012: 83.

Type material. Paratypes. 3♂,2♀: “Paratypus [printed in black on red label]/ Ngaouyanga / juillet [printed in black on white label]// Miss. Sci. Suisse / Caméroun 1947 [handwritten in black on white label]// Coll. Mus. Congo / Col. P. Basilewsky [printed in black on white label], 1♀ same labeled except “ Craspedophorus  / Strachani Hope  / s. monardi  . m. [handwritten in black]/ P. Basilewsky det. [printed in black on white label]” ( Plate 1View PLATE 1, Figs 8, 9, MRAC); 1♂,1♀ same labeled except “Sakdje / Aout [printed in black on white label]” ( Plate 1View PLATE 1, Fig. 7, Plate 12View PLATE 12, Fig. 93, MRAC, NMPC).

Note. This subspecies is based on 23 specimens, collected in northern Cameroon  . Description (in part, see Basilewsky 1951a: 385): “Specimens, collected by Dr. Monard, differ from typical form of West Africa , and from specimens, collected in northern Belgian Congo, in their elytra less convex and in their different elytral colouration, with lemon yellow maculae, which are more shiny and distinctly longer. [In C. s. monardi  ] humeral macula consists of seven macular spots, distinctly elongating from III to IX interval, spot on III interval very short, spot on IX interval mostly elongated moreless posteriorly; preapical macula consists of six spots, reaching from III to VIII interval, spot on III interval very short, spot on VI interval markedly shorted anteriorly. In two specimens humeral maculae, each with macular spot on IX interval prolonged almost as posterior as spots of preapical macula are located ( Plate 1View PLATE 1, Fig. 7). Also in one specimen from Ngaouyanga both maculae on each elytron jointed, forming one wide longitudinal band from III to IX interval anteriorly and from III to VIII interval posteriorly, distinctly narrower on intervals IV to IX; this band is symmetrical on each elytron, creating bizarre aspect in this genus” [from French].
