Genus Afrolytta Kaszab, 1959

The genus is recorded for the first time from Namibia and it results endemic to both Namibian and South African Namaqualand. Afrolytta needs to be revised because Kaszab (1959) asssigned to it only three species ( A. amoena , A. carneola , and A. mashuna ). A new species from South African Namaqualand is described below, while mashuna ( Péringuey, 1899) , actually belongs to the eleticine genus Morphozonitis Pic, 1922 ( Bologna 2009).
