Remarks: The new species [Lophostreptus magombera] bears a remarkable resemblance to Lophostreptus similis Attems, 1934, described from Angola. Not only are the gonopods, including the unusually shaped lateral metaplical process, largely identical; the body size of L. similis (adult male diameter 2.8 mm, 45 “Segmente”, i.e., 44 podous rings + telson) is only slightly larger than in of L. magombera sp. nov. (adult male diameter 1.8–2.1 mm, 42–44 podous rings). Non-gonopodal characters of L. similis as described by Attems (1934) are fully compatible with L. magombera. However, the new species lacks the small, digitiform mesal coxal process “c” and the elongate telopodite lobe “b” described for L. similis by Attems (1938), and the semicircular flange on the gonopod telopodite of L. magombera (Fig. 20D, F) is lacking in L. similis.
