The African spider genus Singafrotypa Benoit is redescribed and transferred from the tetragnathid subfamily Nephilinae to the araneid subfamily Araneinae. Cladistic analysis of the matrix of Scharff & Coddington (1997) with the addition of two Singafrotypa species supports this new placement. Singafrotypa acanthopus Simon, the type species of the genus, is described along with two new species: Singafrotypa okavango new species from Botswana, and Singafrotypa mandela new species from South Africa. Singafrotypa goliath Benoit is transferred to Neoscona Simon (Araneidae, Araneinae).
