The first comprehensive survey of the Cameroonian Drilini fauna is presented. High diversity was identified in the zone of tropical rain forest and five genera are proposed: Flabelloselasia gen. n., Kupeselasia gen. n., Lolosia gen. n., Microselasia gen. n., and Wittmerselasia gen. n. with the subgenus Latoselasia subgen. n. The following species are described: Flabelloselasia oculata sp. n., Kupeselasia minuta sp. n., Lolosia transversalis sp. n., Microselasia barombi sp. n., M. elongata sp. n., M. gracilis sp. n., M. grandis sp. n., M. kupensis sp. n., M. lolodorfensis sp. n., M. macrocephala sp. n., M. obscura sp. n., M. pseudograndis sp. n., Wittmerselasia camerooniana sp. n., W. davidsoni sp. n., W. geiseri sp. n., W. variabilis sp. n., and W. (Latoselasia) similis sp. n. Selasia maculataWittmer, 1989 is redescribed and transferred to Wittmerselasia gen. n. as W. maculata (Wittmer, 1989), comb. n. Taxonomically important characters are illustrated for all genera and species and an identification key for Drilini from Cameroon is provided.
