Distribution. Previously recorded from South Africa (Dirsh 1956; Johnsen 1990, Naskrecki 1995), Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia ( Johnsen 1990; Nasckreki 1995), Namibia and Zambia ( Naskrecki 1995).

Remarks. Genus Euryphymus  was erected by Stål (1873). Of the described species of this genus, they all suit the description of this genus except for E. xanthocnemis Branc. 1897  (Dirsh 1956). Dirsh (1956) argues that this species does not suit the descriptions of this genus and he has no doubt that it does not belong to this genus or even to the Euryphyminae  subfamily but he kept it there anyway. I was not able to review the specimen in question because I could not get hold of the material. I also found a lot of diversity in the shape of the male cerci of this genus when I reviewed our field collected specimens, and a revision is necessary.
