Two new species of Friesea from the Western Cape province in South Africa, F. stevenchowni sp. nov. and F. capensis sp. nov., are described. Friesea capensis sp. nov. is easily distinguished by the lack of ocelli and anal spines, while F. stevenchowni sp. nov. is distinguished from other sub-Saharan species of the genus by a combination of characters including two anal spines in the position of m1, tibiotarsi with chaeta M present, 3 3 chaetae on the thoracic tergum I and 5 5 eyes. An identification key is provided for Friesea species that are found in sub-Saharan Africa.
