status

 

* Drypta (Deserida) disctincta (Rossi, 1792)  

Distribution in Angola (Provinces): 2) Huambo.

Material examined. Caála (12° 51´ 11´´ S, 15° 33´ 07´´ E, 1758 m alt., 256) (HUAMBO), 6.XI.2015, 1♀, DO, A. Serrano & R. Capela leg., ASC. GoogleMaps  

Remarks. A species widespread throughout the Mediterranean Region, West Asia and Africa ( Basilewsky 1960b, Insectoid.info 2017). Curiously, it was never recorded for Angola. A singleton female specimen was found on a wall near public lights with other ground beetles (see E. peringueyi   remarks). It is a new species record for Angola.
