Orphnus strangulatus Paulian
Original description: Paulian R. 1948
Type locality: Kasai, Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Type depository: Museum for Central Africa, Tervuren, Belgium.
Diagnosis. Orphnus strangulatus is most similar to O. parastrangulatus Frolov et Akhmetova but can be separated from it in having frontoclypeus with higher transverse keel, slightly sinuate medially, about half as long as frontoclypeus, and abdomen longer and almost flat (in lateral view contour of abdominal sternites is almost straight).
Distribution. O. strangulatus is known from a number of localities, chiefly on the Katanga Plateau.
