Kavanaugh, David H. (2005), "The California Academy of Sciences Gulf of Guinea Expedition (2001) III. A New Species of the Endemic Genus Straneoa Basilewsky, 1953, from São Tomé (Insecta: Coleoptera: Carabidae: Platynini)", Proceedings of the California Academy of Sciences , 56 (21): 275-283.
A new species of the platynine genus Straneoa Basilewsky, S. seligmani Kavanaugh sp. nov., is described from the Gulf of Guinea, Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe, Ilha São Tomé (type locality: forest between Lagoa Amelia and Bom Sucesso, 1200–1500m, Parque Nacional Ôbó). Both this and the only previously known species, S. collatata (Karsch), apparently are endemic to Ilha São Tomé and microsympatric in geographical and habitat distributions. Adults of the two species differ in size, pronotal and elytral shape, pronotal, elytral, and tarsal chaetotaxy, and in characters of both male and female genitalia.
