Abstract: An updated checklist of Dryinidae, Embolemidae and Sclerogibbidae from Burundi and Kenya is presented. The following new species of Dryinidae are described from Burundi: Anteon nkubayei sp. nov. (Anteoninae); from Kenya: Aphelopus severancei sp. nov. (Aphelopinae); Conganteon lymanorum sp. nov. (Conganteoninae); Anteon alteri sp. nov., A. blacki sp. nov., A. crowleydelmanorum sp. nov., A. mcguirkae sp. nov., Deinodryinus musingilai sp. nov. (Anteoninae); Bocchus johanssoni sp. nov. (Bocchinae); Dryinus digo sp. nov., Thaumatodryinus overholti sp. nov., T. tuukkaraski sp. nov. (Dryininae); from Kenya and Uganda: Anteon semajanna sp. nov. (Anteoninae). The following species have been found for the first time in Kenya: Embolemidae: Ampulicomorpha madecassa Olmi, 1999b, Embolemus ambrensis Olmi, 2004; Dryinidae: Conganteon vulcanicum Benoit, 1951b, Anteon afrum Olmi, 1984, A. canabense (Benoit, 1951a), A. cautum Olmi, 1994b, A. emeritum Olmi, 1984, A. evertsi Olmi, 1989, A. jacksoni Olmi, 2011, A. kivuanum (Benoit, 1951b), A. kwazuluense Olmi, 2007, A. maritimum (Turner, 1928), A. sanyatense Olmi, 2009, A. ugandanum Olmi, 1984, A. xericum Olmi & Harten, 2006, Deinodryinus paulyi Olmi, 1987, Bocchus bini Olmi, 1984, B. botswanensis Olmi, 1991, B. brooksi Olmi, 2003, B. confusus Olmi & Harten, 2006, B. hyalinus Olmi, 1998, B. madagascolus Olmi, 1994b, B. whiteleyi Olmi, 2007, Dryinus cariniceps Cameron, 1906, D. erraticus (Turner, 1928), Echthrodelphax migratorius Benoit, 1954, E. tauricus Ponomarenko, 1970. The following species of Dryinidae have been found for the first time in Burundi: Aphelopus mediocarinatus (Benoit, 1951a), Anteon maritimum (Turner, 1928), Dryinus shimbanus Olmi, 2011. Dryinus turneri nom. nov., is proposed in place of Dryinus ampuliciformis Turner, 1928 (preoccupied by Dryinus (= Campylonyx) ampuliciformis (Westwood, 1835)), already known from Kenya. With the above new records, 76 species of Dryinidae (previously 39) and six species of Embolemidae (previously four) are now known from Kenya. Regarding the Sclerogibbidae of Kenya, the 12 species listed by Olmi & Copeland (2011) are confirmed. In Burundi, six species of Dryinidae (previously two) are recognized. The three species of Embolemidae and one species of Sclerogibbidae previously listed from Burundi are confirmed. Additional new faunistic records are given from Cameroon, Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ivory Coast, Madagascar, Mali, Mozambique, Republic of South Africa, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, Yemen, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
