nov. (Tanzania) are described and illustrated. Two previously known Afrotropical
species, Prometopia binotata Murray, 1867 and Prometopia quadrinotata
Grouvelle, 1896 are redescribed, and a key to Afrotropical species of
Prometopia is given as well as new data on their distribution. Notes to correct
