    Six new species belonging to two new genera of Notoaturinae are described from South Africa: Amperaturus rensburgi, A. abelus, A. similis, A. pauciporus, Valsaturus longipalpis and V. malleatus. Characteristics of the African members of the subfamily are given which distinguish them from those found in other southern continents. The third African genus, Masabania, is redefined.
