By:   Steve Woodhall
Comment:   Afrogegenes letterstedti needs reassigning as Afrogegenes sp, Likewise all SABCA Gegenes niso records need to be reassigned as Afrogegenes sp, because unless someone is going to revisit all those collections and examine every Afrogegenes specimen, no-one can say what they are, for sure!
