Abstract

The catalogue of all known species of the Afrotropical platynotoid lineage of the subtribe Platynotina Mulsant et Rey, 1853 is presented. Twenty one genera containing 127 species (132 subspecies) are listed. The data of primary and secondary types is provided. Based on the article 45.6.4. of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature Opatrinus edentatus Koch, 1956 and O. pinheyi Koch, 1956 are consider as unavailable names. Distribution of the species is listed and illustrated on 152 maps. The relationship between species richness and Afrotropical ecoregions is analyzed and discussed. MaxEnt software was used to model the hypothetical range of chosen species.
