All but one of the species formerly assigned to the subgenus Sintonius in Southern Africa, are assigned to a new subgenus Capensomyia. Three new species, namely, Sergentomyia drakensbergi, S. kalaharia and S. xera, are descriptionbed. All known southern African species are redescriptionbed. A key to all southern African species is given.
