They are: Meliturgula (Poecilomelitta) eardleyana Patiny  , Meliturgula (Poecilomelitta) flavida (Friese)  , Meliturgula (Poecilomelitta) fulginosa (Friese)  , Meliturgula (Meliturgula) haematospila Cockerell  , Meliturgula (Poecilomelitta) rozeni Eardley  , Meliturgula (Meliturgula) scriptifrons (Walker)  , Meliturgula (Popovmeliturgula) senegaliae Patiny  , and Meliturgula (Meliturgula) wilmattae Cockerell. Five  of these were included in a revision of the southern African Panurginae  by Eardley (1991) ( M. eardleyana  and M. senegaliae  were excluded) and six were included in a key by Patiny (2004) ( M. senegaliae  was excluded).
