Eight African species of Microterys Thomson are dealt with. Two new species, reared from soft scale insects, are descriptionbed, namely, M. anneckei and M. ceroplastntae. New records and/or redescriptionptions are given of the following six descriptionbed species: capensis Annecke, kenyaensis Compere, nicholsoni Compere, bizanensis Compere, flavus (Howard) and haroldi Prinsloo & Rosen. The characters by which this group of species may be distinguished are given, as well as a key to the males and females of all these species.
