Aï¿½des (Mucidus)? mucidus, Karsch, 1887. A male specimen from N'dumu (Tongaland, Natal) collected by Mr. H. E. Paterson, which he has kindly lent to me, has terminalia almost exactly as this species except that the phallosome is not quite so pointed at the apex. It differs from the descriptionption of Edwards (1941, p. 112) in having a median white ring in the middle of the middle tibia and in that the white bands on the second and third hind tarsal segments are rather broader than illustrated (Edwards, lac. cit., p. 111).
