Genetic data. BIN: BOLD:ABZ6643 (n=6 from Ethiopia; n= 5 from Cameroon, Uganda, Kenya; maximum variation 1.0%). Nearest species: Z. rhamphis Fletcher, 1974   (1.8%).

Distribution. Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Madagascar, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda ( Fletcher 1974; Herbulot 1977; Beck & Karisch 2011; Sircoulomb 2013). The subspecies Z. reflexaria apsis   is known from central and eastern Africa ( Fletcher 1974).

Remarks. Ethiopian populations show a slight genetic divergence from other specimens of Z. reflexaria   . Female genitalia of one specimen well corresponding to the figure of Z. cucharita Fletcher, 1974   in the original description. Shape of the antrum is clearly tapered while it is truncate and dentate in Z. reflexaria   . More material (males, other DNA barcodes) is needed to check the potential occurrence of Z. cucharita   in Ethiopia.
