The genus Proandricus Plisko, 1992, was erected to accommodate proandric species, new and previously included in Microchaetus Rapp, 1849. Further species were descriptionbed in subsequent papers (Plisko 1993 1994). Six more new species have been identified in the Oligochaeta collection of the Natal Museum and are descriptionbed below. Proandricus now has a total of 33 species, all known from southern Africa (South Africa: Eastern Transvaal, Transvaal, Natal, Transkei, Eastern and Western Cape Provinces; Lesotho: Maluti and Masite Mountain ranges).
