Abstract: The circumtropical genus Poecilosomella Duda is redefined (incl. features of genitalia). P. arnaudi sp. n. (Zaire) and P. capensis sp. n. (South Africa) are described. P. upembana (Vanschuytbroeck, 1959), P. tincta (Vanschuytbroeck, 1950), P. melania (Vanschuytbroeck, 1950) and P. melanoides (Richards, 1980) are junior synonyms of P. giraffa (Richards, 1938), P. nivieps (Vanschuytbroeck, 1950)is a junior synonym of P. pictitarsis (Richards, 1938); each new synonymyzation is based on the study of types. The name of Poecilosoma mirabilis Vanschuytbroeck, 1951 is reinstated, not being a junior primary homonym. A key is provided for the Afrotropical species.
