The genus Africophilus Guign. was erected by Guignot (1947) to accommodate the species A. inopinatus from the Ivory Coast, West Africa. Unfortunately only the female is known. In subsequent years A. pauliani Legros (1950) and A. nesiotes Guignot (1951) were descriptionbed from Madagascar and A. jansei O-C (1957) from South Africa. The known distribution of A. nesiotes has since been extended outside Madagascar to West, East and Southern Africa. In this paper three new species are descriptionbed, two from Nigeria and one from Malawi.
