Ctenocalus  SZEPLIGETI, 1908

Ctenocalus  SZEPLIGETI, 1908: 51, 54. Type species: Ctenocalus cephalotus  SZEPLIGETI, 1908 (Stockholm).

Magwenga MORLEY, 1919: 166. Type species: Magwenga maculipennis MORLEY, 1919 (London).

Ctenocalus  HEINRICH, 1933: 162; Magwenga MORLEY, 1919 as synonym.

This is a strictly Afrotropical genus with only 3 species described so far, occurring in Eastern ( Tanzania, Uganda) and Southern Africa ( South Africa). Ctenocalus  can be easily differentiated from the other two genera of the tribe Ctenocalini  occurring in the Afrotropical area ( Magwengiella  HEINRICH and Seyrigiella HEINRICH) by the following characteristics: propodeum without or with incomplete carination; all claws of ♀ pectinate, and notauli obsolete, present only at the base ( HEINRICH 1967 -1968: 378).
