  • ISSN : 0304-0798



The Scenopinidae of Africa, south of the equator and its neighboring islands, have never been treated in a single reference readily available to entomologists of the area. The fauna presently comprises 31 species, many of which are represented only by the type specimens housed in foreign museums and unavailable for study. This paper presents provisional keys to the species, illustrations of the key characters of all species, notes on type location, specimens examined and a brief descriptionption of key characters. Complete descriptionptions and illustrations of the two new species, Scenopinus stuckenbergi and Propebrevitrichia quadrispina, are given.
