oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Some new records of African Mecoptera

Volume 34, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



New localities are recorded for Bittacus walkeri Esben-Petersen in South Africa, B. weelei E.-P. in Zambia, and B. fumosus E.-P. in Tanzania. Through the courtesy of Dr. E. Pinhey, I have had the opportunity of examining some Mecoptera from the National Museum, Rhodesia. Unfortunately, the abdomens of some specimens are incomplete and some of the label data is indistinct but the records are, nevertheless, of interest. Three species are included and all represent extensions of the known ranges of the species.
