Abstract

Two new species of Apatomyza Wiedemann from South Africa, A. whocantell spec. nov. and A. angusticephala spec. nov., are described, illustrated, and placed within the most recent key to species. Into the data matrix recently used to infer a phylogenetic hypothesis for the subfamily, were added the two new taxa, in order to verify their position and relationships. They form the most apical clade in Apatomyza.
