Abstract

A checklist of species of the flea beetle genus Stephens known from the Afrotropical Region is given. The following new synonymies are proposed: Jacoby, 1907 = Bechyné, 1959 = Bechyné, 1959 = Bechyné, 1960, ; Bechyné, 1955 = Bechyné, 1955 = Bechyné, 1955, ; Weise, 1916 = Bryant, 1928, (species transferred to the genus Weise, 1910); Bechyné, 1955 = Bechyné, 1955, ; Bechyné, 1955 = Bechyné, 1955, ; Jacoby, 1897 = Jacoby, 1899, ; Weise, 1910 = Bryant, 1928, ; Weise, 1910 = Laboissière, 1942 = Laboissière, 1942 = Bryant, 1948 = Bechyné, 1954 = Bechyné, 1954 = Bechyné, 1959 = Bechyné, 1960 = Bechyné, 1960, ; Pic, 1911 = Laboissière, 1942 = Bechyné, 1960, ; Bechyné, 1955 = Bechyné, 1955 = Bechyné, 1955, ; Bechyné, 1960 = Bechyné, 1960, ; Csiki, 1940 = Scherer, 1962, ; Bechyné, 1955 = Bechyné, 1960, ; Bryant, 1928 = Bechyné, 1960, ; Bechyné, 1959 = Scherer, 1962, ; Bechyné, 1960 = Scherer, 1962, ; Bechyné, 1955 = Bechyné, 1955, ; Laboissière, 1942 = Bechyné, 1960, ; Laboissière, 1942 = Bechyné, 1960, ; Bechyné, 1955 = Bechyné, 1960, ; Bryant, 1928 = Laboissière, 1942 = Bechyné, 1955 = Scherer, 1962, ; Bechyné, 1955 = Bechyné, 1955, ; (Stierlin, 1866) = Bechyné, 1955, ; Scherer, 1962 = Bechyné, 1960, ; Laboissière, 1942 = Bechyné, 1968, ; Bechyné, 1954 = Bechyné, 1960 = Scherer, 1962, . The following new combinations are established: Bechyné, 1960 = (Bechyné, 1960) . Laboissière, 1942 = (Laboissière, 1942) . Bechyné, 1959 = (Bechyné, 1959) .; Bechyné, 1959 = (Bechyné, 1959) . As regards to and , species described by Maulik (1931) from the Seychelles, they are to be attribute to a new genus currently being described. The following taxa are considered good species: Jacoby, 1906; Bryant, 1948; Laboissière, 1942, . Moreover, lectotypes are designated for: Jacoby, 1907; Weise, 1910; Jacoby, 1897; Abeille de Perrin, 1909; Bryant, 1928; Bryant, 1928; (Baly, 1876); Bryant, 1928; Jacoby, 1906; Jacoby, 1899; Jacoby, 1897; Weise, 1910; Bryant, 1948; Jacoby, 1899; Jacoby, 1897; Bryant, 1928; Baly, 1877; Bryant, 1928; Chapuis, 1879; Jacoby, 1906; Jacoby, 1897; Bryant, 1928; Jacoby, 1900; Jacoby, 1897; Bryant, 1948; Bryant, 1928; Bryant, 1928; Jacoby, 1899; Baly, 1877; Bryant, 1926. Finally, (Illiger, 1807) is added to the Afrotropical fauna. Information concerning the type material, updated geographical distribution (integrated with much new data) and taxonomic comments are reported.
