Despite having only one named species, confusion surrounds the identity of Afroserphus wasps. We hereby describe Afroserphus masneri Buffington, Copeland and van Noort, new species, to accommodate some of the specimens previously attributed to Afroserphus bicornis Masner, and redescribe A. bicornis in the process, including description of the female. Afroserphus fisheri Buffington, Copeland and van Noort, new species, is described based on a unique male from Madagascar, extending the genus to that island. We also present new collection records for Afroserphus, as well as habitat preferences and phenological data.
