Abstract

The Afrotropical eucoiline genus Stentorceps, described in 1984, has remained monotypic until now. Stentorceps is herein redescribed using recent field collections from Kenya and Madagascar. Stentorceps tubicen Quinlan is redescribed, and the new species S. abbotti, S. heimdalli, S. vuvuzela, S. weedlei and S. zuparkoi are described. Stentorceps heimdalli, S. weedlei and S. zuparkoi extend the range of Stentorceps to Nigeria, Madagascar, Rwanda, Somalia and South Africa. The descriptions and keys provide a foundation for future taxonomic and biological investigations.
