  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The first known southern African Habropogon species, H. capensis, is descriptionbed. The genus Habropogon is primarily Palaearctic in distribution; apart from one other species recorded from southern Saudi Arabia, this is the only Afrotropical representative of the genus. A second species is added to the genus Hermannomyia. H. oldroydi from Lesotho and the Cape Province of South Africa is descriptionbed and compared with the type-species, H. engeli (Hull), which is recorded from Zimbabwe and South Africa.
