The genus Agelia Laporte and Gory is revised. It consists of two geographically isolated species groups, one occurring in the Afrotroplcal Region, the other in the Oriental Region. Nine species are recognized, one of which is described as new: A. petelii (Gory), A. lordi (Walker), A. obtusicollis Fairmaire, A. pectinicornis (Laporte and Gory), A. chalybea (Wiedemann), A. fasciata (Gory), A. limbata (Wiedemann), A. theryi Hoschek and A. burmensis spec. nov. Twelve new synonyms are proposed and one neotype is designated. Redescriptions, diagnoses, an identification key, distribution maps and detailed illustrations are provided for all species.
