Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps   ; Caála (12° 51´ 11´´ S, 15° 33´ 07´´ E, 1758 m alt., 256) (HUAMBO), 4. XI.2015, 1 ♀, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC GoogleMaps   .

Remarks. A species widespread throughout Angola, D. R. of the Congo, Burundi, Zambia and Mozambique ( Basilewsky 1955, Häckel & Farkač 2012, 2013a, Insectoid.info 2017), presenting some variability on the elytra maculae. Adults were found during night near public lights together with other ground beetles [e.g. S. guineense   , Chlaenius cupreocinctus Reiche, 1847   , Ch. tenuicollis (Fabricius, 1801)   , Progonochaetus planicollis ( Putzeys, 1880)   , Agonidium alacre (Boheman, 1848)   , Agonidium natalense (Boheman, 1848)   , E. intermedius   , Euleptus peringueyi Csiki, 1931   ]. It is a new record for the Huambo Province.
