Stenolophus (Egadroma) humeralis (Dejean, 1831)


* Stenolophus (Egadroma) humeralis (Dejean, 1831)  

Distribution in Angola (Provinces): 2) Kwanza Sul.

Material examined. Alto Ventura (Faz. Monte Café) (Calulo) (9° 59´ 15´´ S, 14° 50´ 12´´ E, 1086 m alt., 128) (KWANZA SUL), 5.XII.2015, 1♂, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC. GoogleMaps  

Remarks. A species widespread throughout western Africa ( Senegal, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Gabon, Mali, D. R. of the Congo) ( Serrano 1999b, Anichtchenko 2016, 2017). The single adult fits well the description and aedeagus of this species and was collected beneath litter together with adults of some tiger and ground beetles [e.g. Dromica   ( Foveodromica   ) sp., A. distinctus   , A. optimus   , D. tarsalis   , C. magnicollis discrepans   , G. procera capelai   ssp.n.]. It is a new species record for Angola.
