Abstract

Afropyrgota gen. n. (type species: Apyrgota marshalli Hendel, 1914) is established to include five species, Afropyrgota copelandi sp. n., Afropyrgota mambilla sp. n., Afropyrgota marshalli (Hendel, 1914) comb. n. (= Apyrgota marshalli Hendel, 1914), Afropyrgota ota sp. n. and Afropyrgota uzungwa sp. n., occurring in the tropical part of Africa. All species are described, illustrated and keyed. Th e new genus is similar to Eupyrgota Coquillett in having large size and wasp-like appearance, wing with spurious vein inserted at deep and sharp bend of R2+3, and femora with two ventral rows of shortened and thickened setae, clearly diff ering by the lack of the finger-like projections on presternum and sclerotized hooks on oviscape. Four species formerly assigned to Apyrgota are shown to belong to Tylotrypes Bezzi: T. breviventris (Shi, 1996), comb. n.; T. fura (Shi, 1996), comb. n.; T. jiangleensis (Shi, 1994), comb. n.; T. longa (Shi, 1996), comb. n.; in addition, 2 species are transferred here from Campylocera Macquart and Adapsilia Waga: T. fuscipes (Wulp, 1885), comb. n. and T. hispida (Kim & Han, 2001), comb. n. A revised diagnosis of the genus Tylotrypes is given
