The species of Arrhenophagus Aurivillius are revised following examination of types. Arrhenophagus intermedius Blanchard and A. parlatoreae (Risbec) are synonymized with A. chionaspidis Aurivillius, and A. albipes Girault is placed as a synonym of A. albitibiae Girault. The type species of Arrhenophagoidea, A. coloripes Girault, is redescriptionbed and three new South African species are descriptionbed, namely rolaspidis, chaetacmae and sierra. A key is given to the females of the species of Arrhenophagoidea.
