The genus Afrolernaea was originally described by Fryer (1956). Since then, the type species, Afrolernaea longicollis, has been supplemented by three more species, i.e. A. nigeriensis, A. brevicollis and A. mormyroides. This unobstrusive genus always occurs in low numbers and has, up to now, only been found on mormyrid fishes. Two new species, A. edi sp.n. on Mormyrops deliciosus, Petrocephalus catostoma and Marcucenius macrolepidotus, and A. annemari sp.n. from the first non-morymrid host, Clarias gariepinus, are described from the Kwando River, a tributary of the Zambezi River, Caprivi, Namibia.
