Distribution

Harpapion considerandum s. str. has been recorded from the following African countries: Guinea, Cameroon, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo (ex Zaire), Chad, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Angola, Zimbabwe and South Africa (Eastern Cape, Western Cape and Natal) (Balfour-Browne 1944[1]; Beguin-Billecocq 1910[2]; Fåhraeus 1871[3]; Hoffmann 1968a[4], 1968b[5]; Hustache 1929[6], 1939[7]; Marshall 1940[8]; Voss 1959[9], 1966[10], 1974[11]; Wagner 1911[12]). Two subspecies, whose status is doubtful, have been recorded as follows: ssp. circumscriptum (Hartmann, 1897) from Senegal, Guinea, Mali, Nigeria and Tanzania (Hartmann 1897[13]; Voss 1966[10]); and ssp. combustum (Wagner, 1908) from Tanzania and Angola (Marshall 1953[14]; Wagner 1908[15]).
