Several Chronogaster species are described from West Africa, Brazil and Papua New Guinea. Redescriptions are given for C. serrulata Loof, 1973 and C. magnifica Andrássy, 1956. New species described are: C. multispinatoides n. sp., which is close to C. multispinata Heyns & Coomans, 1980 but differs from it in most measurements; C. parva n. sp. which is distinguished by its small size and long slender tail with laterally directed terminus; and three species with vacuolated lateral glandular bodies, viz. C. rotundicauda n. sp. with a bluntly rounded tail terminus, C. spicata n. sp. with a single stout dorsal mucro at the tail terminus, and C. cameroonensis n. sp. with a relatively long tail bearing a single delicate mucro. A single specimen is reported which differs from C. parva n. sp. only in tail length and shape, and another single specimen resembling C. tenuis Loof and Jairajpuri, 1965 is described but not named. A key is also supplied for the females of Chronogaster.
