The recent revision by Kessel and Clopton (1970) of the Platypezidae of the Ethiopian region lists 38 species belonging to 8 genera. Only one species, the widely distributed Plesioclythia hendricksoni Kessel and Clopton, is recorded from Kenya, from the Teita Hills. Indeed, only 10 species are reported from the whole of tropical Africa, the great majority of the Platypezidae known from Africa being descriptionbed from southern Africa.
