status

 

Genus Dulophanes Konow, 1907 

Dulophanes Konow, 1907 b: 132  . Type species: Dulophanes morio Konow, 1907 b  , by monotypy.

Remarks. The species of Dulophanes  are mostly or predominantly blackish coloured or sometimes with yellow abdomen, and they are small in length, from 4.0 to 6.5 mm. According to Taeger et al. (2010), 21 species of Dulophanes  are known as endemic of the Afrotropical Region. However, most of them belong to the central and West African fauna. The genus Dulophanes  desperately needs a taxonomic revision, because the review by Pasteels (1949) is outdated and in some cases incorrect.

Host plants. Unknown.
