The genus Connomyia Londt is reviewed. The number of known species is increased from nine to 20 through the descriptionption of 11 new species. Two species previously allocated to Connomyia (albipilus; exquisita) are transferred to a new genus, Danomyia, to which a further seven new species are added. Keys are provided for the identification of all Afrotropical species placed in these genera. The systematic position of the only two extralimital Connomyia species, indica and dravidica of India, is briefly discussed. New genus: Danomyia - Type species: Danomyia habra sp. n. New species: Connomyia: annae; argyropodos; briani; callima; ellioti; mali; midas; oropegia; perata; tsacasi; zeus. Danomyia: aethiops; forchhammeri; habra; hepsocrene; pachyphallus; sathos; tanaos. New combinations: Connomyia albipilus (Becker, 1922) and Connomyia exquisita (Engel, 1932) are transferred to Danomyia gen. n. Lectotype designations: Scylaticus pallidus Ricardo, 1925; Scylaticus varipennis Ricardo, 1925; Scylaticus albipilus Becker, 1922.
