Abstract

The distinguishing characters of Neoardelio Hendel, 1914 are discussed in relation to similar Afrotropical genera of Platystomatidae. A new species is described, based on material from near Klawer in the Western Cape, South Africa. A key and illustrations are provided to distinguish this species from the five known species. Two other species are nomina nuda created by Loew (1873). Neoardelia (sic) aliena Frey, 1964 is synonymised with Herina burmanica (Frey, 1959). Biological details from the type locality of the new species confirm phytophagous larval development.
