The Systropinae are well represented in Africa whence the type species, Systropus macilentus Wiedemann, was descriptionbed. About thirty species have since been recorded from the continent, the majority of which are to be found descriptionbed in the works of Bezzi (1924), Enderlein (1926, 1930) and Hesse (1938). Several species not considered by these authors were named by Speiser (1914) and Curran (1927) while additional species have been descriptionbed by Franï¿½ois (1954) and Bowden (1962). Seguy (1934) recorded a second species from Madagascar, Enderlein (1926) being the first to descriptionbe a Malagasy species of Systropus, although Wandolleck (1897) noted an unnamed species (as Cephenus) from Madagascar.
