Ok Bill, I understand your embarrassment , first of all you have to determine if it's a male or female (with mandibles shaping for exemple)..

Claude: As with the other keys on Parandra, its mainly a flip of the coin to determine anything. This specimens really does not fit any of the ones illustrated and the portions of the key that say slightly elongate vs not elongate, really do not help.
Downloaded the paper for future tries when I get my head on straight. Ha Thanks

On the revision of Parandrinae here.
You can try to determine your specimen between the four species known in north Kivu: A. amieti / A. hugoi / A. lucasi and A. plenevauxae.
Good luck !

Thanks. It appears to be more parallel sided than others I have seen. Yes, there are quite a few species.
