[Kroyeria sphyrnae Rangnekar, 1957, collected from scalloped hammerheads, Sphyrna lewini, and smooth hammerheads, S. zygaena, is reported for the first time from the Indian Ocean off the coast of South Africa. The male of K. sphyrnae is described for the first time and supplementary notes on the female are provided. All females exhibited dorsal stylets with bifid tips, and females collected from S. zygaena exhibited an unusual, balloon-like inflation of the first third of the genital complex. However, all females conformed in all other respects to published descriptions of K. sphyrnae. A key to the identification of known males of Kroyeria is also provided.

Le mâle de K. sphyrnae est décrit pour la première fois et des notes supplémentaires sur la femelle sont fournies. Toutes les femelles présentaient des stylets dorsaux à extrémités bifides, et les femelles collectées sur S. zygaena montraient une dilatation inhabituelle, en forme de ballon sur le premier tiers du complexe génital. Cependant, toutes les femelles étaient conformes en tous les autres points aux descriptions publiées de K. sphyrnae. Une clé d'identification des mâles connus de Kroyeria est également fournie., Kroyeria sphyrnae Rangnekar, 1957, collected from scalloped hammerheads, Sphyrna lewini, and smooth hammerheads, S. zygaena, is reported for the first time from the Indian Ocean off the coast of South Africa.
