  • ISSN : 0304-0798



Only two genera and species of Gnoristinae were known up to now from the Afrotropical Region. A third genus, Synapha Meigen, is newly recorded from this region, and five new species are descriptionbed and keyed. Four species are descriptionbed in Dziedzickia Johannsen, and a key is given to the five Afrotropical congeners. A second record is cited for Boletiniella Matile. Morphological, phylogenetic and biogeographical data are discussed.
