Neacidiophora athalioides (Konow, 1907) 

Netroceros athalioides  Konow, 1907 a: 495. Locus typicus: Deutsch-Ostafrika [ Tanzania]. Holotype: ♂. Deutsch-Ostafrica ( SDEI). Neacidiophora athalioides: Enslin, 1913 b: 306  .

Neacidiophora bequaerti  var. sternalis Forsius, 1931: 25  . Locus typicus: C. Abyssinia [ Ethiopia], Maraquo. Holotype: ♂. C. Abyssinia: Maraquo [= Marako near Butajira, ca 08°07'N 038° 22 'E], 07.V. 1914, leg. O. Kovàcs ( BMNH). Neacidiophora luteipennis Pasteels, 1950: 277  . Locus typicus: Congo belge [ Democratic Republic of the Congo], Kivou, Kitembo ( MNHN).

Distribution. Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Tansania, Uganda, Zaire, Zimbabwe.

Remarks. Neacidiophora athalioides  is only known from the male. Its body colouration is similar to N. aethiopica  . Both species are especially distinguished in the shape of their penis valves ( Koch 1998 b: figs 16 and 21). The POL: OOL ratio is 1.0: 1.5 for N. athaloides  whereas 1.0: 2.0 for N. aethiopica  , and the anterior margin of the clypeus is nearly truncate  in N. aethiopica  and rounded medially in N. athaloidea (Koch 1998)  .
