The morphology of the genus Chronogaster Cobb, 1913 is discussed, and an emended diagnosis presented for the genus. The main diagnostic features of all species are tabularized. Four new species are described from South Africa. C. multispinata n. sp. resembles C. andrassyi Loof & Jairajpuri, 1965, but differs from it in the location of the amphid and in various measurements. C. longicauda n. sp. has a single mucro on the relatively long tail. C. africana n. sp. resembles. C. multispinata and C. andrassyi, but has a mucro plus six short stout spines on the tail. C. glandifera n. sp. is the only known species in the genus, apart from C. typica de Man, 1921, which has large lateral glandular bodies.
