Among the Macronota’s described and figured in Gory and Percheron’s »Monographie des Cétoines (1833)” there is a small species from West-Africa, viz.: Macronota apicalis G. & P., which, though with some doubt, was placed by the authors in the genus Macronota, composed of Asiatic species only. Our advanced knowledge of the distribution of Cetoniid genera induces us to consider the occurrence in West-Africa of a species, belonging to an exclusive Asiatic genus, a fact of much doubt. Moreover the figure of M. apicalis is not at all representing the peculiar facies of a Macronota, but looks much more like a Glycypliana with a slightly lobed prothorax.
