The genus Africophilus belonging to the Laccophilinae was descriptionbed by Guignot (1947) on a female from the Ivory Coast. Since then two more species have been descriptionbed from Madagascar; A. pauliani Legros (1950) and A. nesiotes Guignot (1951) and another is descriptionbed below. As a result the original generic diagnosis is in need of amendment.
