Abstract:

Two new genera of Keroplatidae (Diptera), Afrokeroplatus gen. nov. and Asiokeroplatus gen. nov., are proposed for two new species, Afrokeroplatus ashleyi sp. nov. from South Africa, and Asiokeroplatus tiger sp. nov. from northern Thailand. An updated key to the World genera of the tribe Keroplatini is presented.
