The Afrotropical genus Cyclolimnichus Deleve is revised. The only previously descriptionbed species in the genus, C. presignis Deleve, is redescriptionbed and three species, C. dentoni and C. ovalis from Cameroon and C. jaechi from Kenya, are descriptionbed as new. Two species groups are identified according to external morphology and male genitalia, the first comprises C. presignis and C. jaechi, and the second C. ovalis and C. dentoni. A key to the species of Cyclolimnichus is provided.
