Two new species, Eupodes minipilus and E. acanthus, are descriptionbed and illustrated, and E. parajusifer Meyer & Ryke is redescriptionbed. An identification key to the southern African species of the genus Eupodes is provided. Special emphasis is placed on the shape and position of dorsal idiosomal setae, chaetotaxy of the palp, leg chaetotaxy and solenidiotaxy. Eupodes fusiferellus Meyer & Ryke, E. variegatus Koch and E. longipilus Thor, previously reported from South Africa, are discussed.
