Stenocypha hasta (Pinhey)

Mahale Jewel (Stenocypha hasta)

The Mahale Jewel, described in 1960, is, or maybe was, restricted to the area around the Mahale Mounatins along the eastern shores of Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania.

The species has apparently not been recorded since its description, and given the increase in human population in that area there is apparently no habitat left and the species might indeed be extinct.
