Five species of this very peculiar genus of the Bombyliidae are at present known from Africa south of the Sahara; cirrhata Bezzi from Somaliland, xanthogramma Bezzi from Southern Africa and Southern Rhodesia, nigrifrons Bezzi from Kenya, bella Curran from the Belgian Congo and cercoplecta Hesse from Southern Africa. I can now add two more species, one extending the range of the genus to West Africa (Nigeria), the other apparently a relatively common species at Kawanda, Uganda, which is also a new territorial record for the genus.
