Myriochila (Monelica) dorsata ( Brulle , 1834)


24. Myriochila (Monelica) dorsata ( Brulle, 1834)  


Semi-desert and savanna habitats ( Werner 2000).



Distribution range.

Southern Sahel zone from Mauritania and Senegal to Sudan ( Werner 2000). Listed by Horn and Roeschke (1891) also for Egypt. Horn (1931) knew of four specimens labelled “Egypt”, all from different collections. Therefore it seems unlikely that all records are mislabelled. Nonetheless, the records may refer to Egypt in its historical sense which includes parts of modern-day Sudan (cf. Alfieri 1976).

Distribution in the southern Levant.

No record.
