Abstract

A review of the three known species of Pegylis occurring in South Africa is provided, including a dichotomous key, illustrations of diagnostic features, distribution maps and notes on natural history. Lectotypes are designated for Hypopholis sommeri Burmeister, 1855, and Pegylis pondoensis Arrow, 1943. Pegylis vittata atrata Machatschke, 1955 syn. nov. is regarded here as conspecific with Pegylis vittata.
