Notosacantha nervosa (Spaeth)  

New host and country records: ZIMBABWE, 40 km N Mhangura, Chipiri estate lake, 168379310S, 308069420E, 19-IX-1998, one adult. This species was feeding on the newly-forming, succulent leaves of Brachystegia spiciformis Harms   , Fabaceae   . A cursory inspection revealed that all the woody vegetation in the vicinity was either void of leaves or they possessed aged and weathered leaves. Borowiec (1999) recorded N. nervosa   from ‘‘südlichsten Teil des Kongostaates: Elisabethville, Nieuwdorp, Kapiri’’ which is in Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire).
