[Xanthodisca vibius (Hewitson)]
Astictopteras vibius Hewitson, 1878: 343 (Gabon).
This species is included as a possible Liberian resident since Berger (1962: 453) reports a male from Mount Tonkoui, Ivory Coast, at 1300 meters elevation. This is as strange a record for vibius as is the Holland type of Osmodes staudingeri for rega, and it lends further credence to the hypothesis that rega and vibius are very closely related to, but distinct from, one another.
