Abstract - A new species of Parophonus Ganglbauer, 1891 subg. Orphanixus Clarke, 1971 from continental Africa and notes on the subgenus Heterohyparpalus Basilewsky, 1946 (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Harpalinae) - Parophonus (Orphanixus) rotundangulus n. sp. is described from Tanzania and Zambia, the habitus and male genitalia of the same are illustrated.  P. (O.) rotundangulus n. sp. is easily distinguished from Parophonus (Orphanixus) gojebensis (Clarke, 1971) by its pronotum wider, with anterior angles more protruding and basal angles distinctly more rounded, elytra wider, with shorter pubescence, and discal setigerous punctures situated on intervals 3, 5 and 7 more distinct, striae finely punctate (not punctate in P. gojebensis), and a different shape of the median lobe of the aedeagus. Some further systematic notes on Parophonus Ganglbauer, 1891 subg. Heterohyparpalus Basilewsky, 1946 are provided.
