Abstract

The adult male of the only pseudomorphine species known from Africa, Cryptocephalomorpha genieri Baehr, is described and illustrated based on specimens collected from Zambia at a light trap. A new locality is reported, and the distribution of the species and what is known about it are summarized. Cryptocephalomorpha genieri is separated from other members of the genus by a moderately large size and broad habitus, distinctive coloration lacking an elytral spot, and distinctive male genitalia. The additional character data provided by the discovery of the male of C. genieri are briefly discussed with respect to its systematic relationships within the genus Cryptocephalomorpha Ritsema.
