In the past, often listed as B. cafer on grounds that original description of leadbeateri, based on a specimen now lost, is claimed to refer to female of B. abyssinicus; convincing evidence, however, now suggests that lost specimen was female of present species; leadbeateri should therefore be retained and cafer considered a junior synonym. Monotypic.
