Whilst collecting along the banks of the Shawanoe, Hunyani and Ruwa Rivers in Southern Rhodesia, two new species of Sisyridae have been taken. All three rivers concerned form part of the Zambezi River system, and all flow throughout the year. These insects appear to be somewhat uncommon, and there are, apparently, no previous records of the family from the Federation; only one mention of their occurrence in Southern Africa has been traced (Kimmins, 1935.) The terminology used in this paper is mainly that used by Parfin and Gurney (1956).
