Record numbers. Democratic Republic of Congo: 1, Kenya: 1, Republic of South Africa: 1; total: 3.

Remarks. Originally described from Africa this species also has single reports from Asia, Central and South America ( McInnes 1994a, Kaczmarek et al. 2014a, Kaczmarek et al. 2015). The limited early description of E. crassispinosus ( Murray, 1907a)  requires new material from the type locale to confirm both the species and its biogeographic description.
