Type material. Holotype (♂): “Fort-Crampel / Congo-français [printed in black on white label]// n. sp. / prės imperialis   / Kolbe / i. l. / prės eximius Laf.   // Crampeli   / Type. Alluaud / Alluaud déterm [handwritten in black on white labels]” ( Fig. 61 View FIGURE 61 ; Plate 9, Fig. 65 left, MNHN). 1♂, 2♀: “ W Centr. Africa Rep. of, Nana-Mambéré prov. 60 km SE Bouar , 5 km NE Baoro, 600 m VI-09 lgt   . A. Kudrna jr. (HT and PTT of Craspedophorus arnosti Häckel, 2016   )” (Figs 65 right, 66 left, cMH).  

Other material examined. Cameroon. Centre. 2♂, 2♀: “ Joko ” ( MRAC, cMH, Plate 9, Fig. 66 right)   ; 1♂: “ Yaoundé ” ( MRAC). Central Africa   . 1♂: “ Oubangui Chari, Fort Crampel [= Nana-Grébizi Prefecture, Kaga Bandoro ]” ( MRAC)   ; 2♀: “ Fort Sibut [= Kémo Prefecture]“ ( MRAC, cMH).  

Note. This species is based on a single specimen labeled “Fort-Crampel, sur le haut Chari, dans le Congo français ” (see also Note to C. bouvieri bouvieri Rousseau, 1905   ). C. crampeli   was originally ( Alluaud 1915: 153) described as a subspecies of Eudema   [= Isotarsus   ] eximia (LaFerté-Sénectere, 1851)   , name of another species, recently ( Basilewsky 1987: 200) synonymized with C. reflexus (Fabricius, 1781)   . Description (in part see Alluaud 1915a: 153). “ A large subspecies that may reach 30 mm, while E. eximia   s. str. [= C. reflexus   ] reaches hardly 26 mm (statue decribed by La Ferté {loc. cit.}, and those specimens I collected in 1880 in Assinie, Ivory Coast). But its statue is not constant and all examined specimens of this subspecies are recognizable mainly as follows: yellow humeral fascia markedly wider, reaching from II. to VIII. interval (seven intervals), while macular spots are absent on three internal intervals (including sutural) in the type of the species [= C. reflexus   ]. Preapical yellow fascia variable, ranging from IV. to VIII. interval, or reduced to 2 elongated macular spots on intervals IV and VI, and, finally, totally absent. Pronotum and elytra shaped and sculptured similarly to in E. eximia   [= C. reflexus   ]; I do not consider the form of crampeli   different on specific level” [from French].

Distribution. Cameroon: Central Province; Central African Republic.
