Abstract

A revision of the current knowledge of the Afrotropical species of Aegilips Haliday, 1835 is given. The previously known South African Aegilips capensisKieffer, 1912 is redescribed and its distribution area extended, being cited for the first time in other countries of sub-Saharan Africa. Three new species are described: Aegilips aethiopicus Mata-Casanova & Pujade-Villar sp. n., Aegilips foveata Mata-Casanova & Pujade-Villar sp. n. and Aegilips virungae Mata-Casanova & Pujade-Villar sp. n. Diagnostic characters and data about biology, distribution and affinities with other Aegilips species are discussed. An identification key for the Afrotropical species of Aegilips is given.
