Hypsoperine acronea (Coetzee, 1956), a parasite of the roots of sorghum, is described more fully. It differs from H. graminis Sledge & Golden, 1964, in the following particulars: the obscure perineal pattern, the dimensions of the oesophagus and the tail in the male and the second stage larva, the position of the hemizonid in the larva which is situated immediately anterior to the excretory pore. The parasite caused the formation of rather inconspicuous galls. The growth of the plants was not visibly affected by the infestation. Males were very abundant. Besides sorghum, H. acronea reproduced successfully on Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br., and a number of grasses. It did not reproduce on groundnuts, and very little on beans and tomatoes.
