Three genera comprise the tribe Atomosiini in the Afrotropical Region. Goneccalypsis Hermann, previously with only two species (1 Oriental, 1 Afrotropical), is added to with the descriptionption of a new species, G. montanus (Lesotho and South Africa). Loewinella Hermann, previously with five species (2 Palaearctic, 3 Afrotropical), is added to with the descriptionptions of four new species (1 Oriental, 3 Afrotropical), L. deemingi (Nigeria), L. eburacta (Ivory Coast), L. flavipes (Namibia) and L. lehri (Pakistan). Descriptive notes and illustrations are given for all the species of Loewinella and a key supplied for their separation. A third genus, Dichaetothyrea de Meijere, previously known only from a single Oriental species, is recorded for the first time from the Afrotropical Region with the descriptionption of a new species, D. calvifrons (Madagascar).
