The genus Acrophymus was erected by Uvarov in 1922 and he referred to it two species: Euryphymus squamipennis Brancsik, 1898, the type species of the genus, and Euryphymus sigmoidalis I. Bolivar, 1889. Miller in 1936 and 1949 added two new species. Uvarov in 1953 descriptionbed two more new species and transferred Caltopenus obesus I. Bolivar, 1889 to it. Johnston (1956) in his ""Catalogue of African Grasshoppers"" listed eight species of Acrophymus. Two more species are descriptionbed as new below.
