A specimen of Scolecoseps from Litipo Forest in southeastern Tanzania is compared with previously recorded material and described as a new species, S. litipoensis, which shows affinities with the forest-dwelling genus Melanoseps. The type species of the genus, S. boulengeri, is considered to be a derived form which has moved into a savanna habitat. The status of S. acontias remains uncertain due to the inadequate description and destruction of the type specimen.
