Genus Arge Schrank, 1802 

Arge Schrank, 1802: 236  . Type species: Tenthredo enodis Linné, 1767  [= Arge enodis (Linné, 1767)  ], by subsequent designation of Rohwer 1911.

Remarks. The species of Arge  are distributed in all biogeographical regions, except the Antarctic. The genus comprises 113 valid species for the Afrotropical Region ( Taeger et al. 2010), and is the most species-rich sawfly genus of this region. This list by Taeger et al. (2010) is mainly based on the revisions by Pasteels (1953, 1963), who especially concentrated on the fauna of the Belgian Congo and the eastern, adjacent countries (i.e. Rwanda, Uganda). Later 18 species were described, and four species synonymized ( Koch & Goergen 2010; Koch 2011; Koch & Eardley 2011; Koch 2012 a; Koch & Liston 2012 a, b; Koch 2013), thus leading to 127 recognized species. Nevertheless, the taxonomy of the Afrotropical Arge  species is partly outdated, incomplete and in some cases incorrect, rendering a revision necessary. So far only the Arge capensis  species group that is distributed in southern Africa ( Koch & Liston 2012 b) and the Arge mirabilipes  species group ( Koch & Eardley 2011; Koch 2012 a) are defined and revised.
