In southern Africa, the genus Ochetostoma is currently represented by ten species: Ochetostoma natalense is described as new; O. baronii, O. kempi, O. palense, O. decameron and O. formosulum are redescribed and figured (the first four are new records for the region); O. capense and O. arkati are briefly diagnosed; O. caudex and O. erythrogrammon, recorded from several localities, are fairly well known. The status of one species from Park Rynie Beach, on the Natal coast, remains to be resolved. A key for the identification of all the species in the genus is provided, and the distribution of the southern Africa forms ins briefly discussed.
