Orphnus giganteus Paulian
Original description: Paulian R. 1948
Type locality: Zambia.
Type depository: National Museum of Natural History, Paris.
Diagnosis. Orphnus giganteus is easily distinguished from other Phornus species by the characteristic sculpture of the head and pronotum, small eyes, and parameres with excavations on the ventral side. From all species except for O. renaudi Frolov et Akhmetova it also differs in having well developed wings.
Distribution. O. giganteus is known from a number of localities chiefly on the Katanga Plateau.
