Jason G.H. LONDT Natal Museum, Private Bag 9070, Pietermaritzburg, 3200 South Africa, and School of Botany and Zoology, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg Londt, J.G.H., 2006. A review of the afrotropical species of Nusa Walker, 1851 (Diptera: Asilidae: Laphriinae). Tijdschrift voor Entomologie 149: 101-120, figs. 1-32, tables 1-5. [issn 0040-7496]. Published 1 June 2006. Afrotropical species of Nusa Walker, 1851 are reviewed. Three species are recognised, including the widespread N. infumata (Loew, 1851), which is a highly variable species displaying some sexual dimorphism, geographical variation, and melanism over much of its wide range. An analysis of the observed variation is attempted, but no explanation found. The other two species, N. ingwavuma Oldroyd, 1974 and N. eos sp. n. have far more restricted distributions; are largely confined to the eastern fringe of Africa and can be readily separated from N. infumata. These two species are morphologically very similar to one another, and can only be separated on differences in male genitalia. A key to the species and a discussion of the genus are provided. New species: N. eos recorded from Ethiopia, Kenya (type locality Garissa), Somalia, Sudan and Tanzania. New synonymy: N. infumata = Dasythrix dispar Gerstaecker, 1871; Dasythrix
