Descriptions are given of two new species of Pericoma Walker sensu lato that resemble pulchra Eaton and its allies in the Palaearctic but also have affinities with many species in southern Australia, New Zealand and southern South America. Seven new species of Clytocerus Eaton are placed in Notoclytocerus subg. n., and a synoptic key is given to all Ethiopian species of this group. Mystropsy­choda gen. n., a very distinctive and isolated taxon with no clear affinities, is descriptionbed from one new and two previously established African species.
