Remarks. Beinhundner (2017a) treated this species under the genus Chondrorrhina , recognising three subspecies. The species is very polychromatic (see figures in Beinhundner 2017a). The specimens deposited in MZUC of the “old collection” of Angola are polychromatic also ( Figs. 18i View FIGURE 18 , 19a, b View FIGURE 19 ). All specimens fit very well with its description, including the parameres features ( Figs. 19d, e View FIGURE 19 ) (see Holm & Marais 1992; Holm 1994). The adult specimens of Mussende were collected by means of CT in a secondary moist forest. See also the remarks under Chlorocala inermis . The larvae of all instars of this species were described by Donaldson (1987). Biological and ecological data are provided by Holm & Marais (1992). It is a new species record for Angola and the Cabinda, Cunene, Huíla, Kwanza Norte and Kwanza Sul Provinces.
