Caenides benga (Holland)
Proteides benga Holland, 1891a: 4 (Ogove).
Evans (1937: 159) lists specimens from Cameroon and Gabon and Carnegie Museum has the type and other specimens from the latter country.
A new record from Liberia is: Harbel, 1 9 , III (Fox).
This Liberian specimen represents a dramatic extension of the known range of benga. The specimen is comparable in all respects with a female from Gabon.
