Dioctobroma Hull, 1962  

Dioctobroma Hull, 1962: 162   . Type species: D. flavoterminatus Hull, 1962: 163   by original designation.

Dioctobroma   is a well-defined genus. I have studied the holotype of the only described species of D. flavoterminatum ( BOTSWANA: 1 ♂, Ghanzi, Mongalatsila , 24.iv. 1925, J. Maurice ( BMNH)   ), and another male with the same locality label. This other male has no type label and was probably not seen by Hull. This specimen may not belong to the same species as it differs in coloration, but its genitalia agree well with the holotype ( Figs 28-30 View Figs 28-30 ). Hull (1962) figured the wing which shows r5 to be closed and stalked. The only other material known to me, NAMIBIA: 2 ♂ 3 ♀ Namuskluft 88 , SE 2716 Dd, 7- 15.x. 1970 ( SMW & NM)   , possess open r5 cells, they are otherwise very similar to the holotype.
