Hemp, C; Johns, P: Libanasa kilomeni, a new species of East African Lutosinae (Orthoptera: Anostostomatidae)., Zootaxa, 4032(4), 435–443 (2015), doi:http://dx.doi.org/10.11646/zootaxa.4032.4.8
A new species of Libanasa, L. kilomeni, is described. In contrast to L. brachyura, an inhabitant of lowland wet to submontane forest along the Tanzanian coast and part of the Eastern Arc Mountains of Tanzania, this new species is found in montane forest in the North Pare Mountains. L. kilomeni n. sp. is restricted to a small forest reserve and due to forest clearing at lower elevations probably driven to its upper ecological border. Therefore this species is considered endangered and should be included in the IUCN red list.
