Abstract

The relationships the African genera GampsoacanthaJosifov and Štusák, 1987, GampsocorisFuss, 1852, and Micrometacanthus Lindberg, 1985 (Berytidae: Gampsocorinae) are discussed. Gampsocoris gomeranusWagner, 1965, having a median anterior spine and three basal processes on the pronotum and a short, round antennal segment IV, is transferred to the genus Micrometacanthus (M. gomeranus, new combination). Gampsocoris linnavuorii, new species, from Senegal is diagnosed, described, and illustrated to help distinguish it from all other species of Gampsocoris. A checklist of African Gampsocorinae is given.
