Diagnosis. Cerhomalus quedenfeldti is similar to C. mechowi and C. petrovitzi in having the apices of the parameres with semi-circular excavations in apical view and with more or less developed fossae on ventral sides bordered with a keel, but can be separated from them in having the ventral fossae on the apices of the parameres not bordered proximally and the apices of the parameres in lateral view acute-angled.

Distribution. The species is known from a few localities in the Republic of the Congo.
