status

 

Morion guineensis Imhoff, 1843 

Distribution in Angola (Provinces): 1) Cunene; 2) Luanda, Bié.

Material examined. Barra do Cuanza (09° 18´ 55.42´´ S, 13° 09´ 58.57´´ E, 11 m alt., 107) (LUANDA), 28. IV.2014, 1 ♀, LT, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASCGoogleMaps  ; Satchijamba-Somakwanza (13° 44´ 46.50´´ S, 17° 11´ 2.26´´ E, 1611 m alt., 283) (BIÉ), 2. XI.2014, 1 ♀, LT, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASCGoogleMaps  .

Remarks. A species widespread throughout almost all Africa south of Sahara, including S. Tomé Island (e.g. Straneo 1959, Ferreira 1965, Serrano 1995). Adults were collected by light trapping within a riparian forest (Barra do Cuanza) and an open secondary forest (Satchijamba-Somakwanza). In the later locality the adults were collected together with ant nest beetles [ Paussus (Shuckardipaussus) vanrooni Wasmann, 1922  , Paussus (Katapaussus) chappuisi Reichensperger, 1938  ] (see Serrano 2015a). It is a new record for the Luanda and Bié Provinces.
