The distribution of Heliothis assulta afra (Hardwick), given by Hardwick (1965), showed this species to be relatively rare in southern Africa with only a few known localities. During 1970, a grid of light traps was established in South Africa and some specimens of H. assulta afra were caught. Dr. L. Vari (Transvaal Museum, Pretoria) confirmed the identity of the moths.
