The type of O. melanurus   is a female from the Cape Verde Islands. The material listed above corresponds to the "undescribed species" from Abyssinia mentioned by FAGEL (1970, p. 386) in his discussion of O. melanurus   . FAGEL subsequently affixed type labels to these Eritrean 1 * specimens, which remained undescribed; his hesitation to describe a new species was on account of the slightly greater size of the Eritrean specimens and the great distance separating the two localities. The species has since been recorded from other parts of Africa (HERMAN 2010: 45).

D i s t r i b u t i o n: O. melanurus   is a Sahelian species that has spread widely from the Sahel to other African countries ( Tanzania, Namibia etc.). New to Ethiopia and to Arabia.
