Description

The detailed diagnosis made by Hacker (2016) enabled identification of this species.

Distribution

Our four captured individuals represent the first record of R. remigina  in Zimbabwe. It is also the first record of Remigiodes  in the country. This widespread species was already known from the Guinean (Togo, Nigeria), Congolian (Democratic Republic of Congo), Somalian (Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya) and Zambezian (Tanzania) biogeographic regions and from Madagascar. Our record extended its known continental distribution range by ca. 800 km southwards (Fig. 5View Figure 5).
