The genus Agabus (Dytiscidae) in North Africa is poorly studied. Agabus (Gaurodytes) ramblae was found for the first time in two localities in Tunisia (Sidi Bouzid and Tozeur governorates) and one in Libya (Yafran province). This is the first report of this species from Africa, which increases the number of Agabus species known from North Africa to 13. The known distribution of A. ramblae is discussed. An updated checklist of Agabus species occurring in the North Africa is provided.
