An illustrated key to the genera of Afrotropical Laphriinae is presented. The genus Laphyctis Loew is reinstated to accommodate all Afrotropical species previously placed in Laphystia. The small genus Gerrolasius Hermann (three species) is revised, two new species (G. hermanni - Mozambique; G. old­roydi - South Africa) being descriptionbed. A new genus, Pilophoneus, is provided for the species krugeri Oldroyd, formerly placed in Gerrolasius.
