The african species of Clypeodytes Régimbart, 1894 are taxonomically revised based on studies of the adults. Descriptions, diagnoses, a key to the males, distribution maps and brief notes on the biology are given. The systematics of the genus is discussed. The following new species are described: C. pseudolentus (Kenya), C. spangleri (Kenya), C. submarginatus (Central African Republic, Zaire), C. divoi (Ivory Coast), C. flexuosus (Mali, Nigeria, Central African Republic), C. densepunctatus (Angola, Namibia/South West Africa), C. viator (Uganda), C. weberi (Cameroon), C. roeri (Namibia/South West Africa), C. eboris (Ivory Coast), C. perlautus (Zaire, Uganda), and C. bicolor (Zaire). The following new synonymies are established: C. bedeli Regimbart, 1895 = C. latissimus Guignot, 1958; and C. meridionalis Régimbart, 1895 (the valid name) = C. seminulum Régimbart, 1895 and = C. voiensis Guignot, 1938. A lectotype has been designated for C. bedeli Régimbart, 1895, C. proditus var. procerus Omer-Cooper, 1959 and C. sordidipennis Régimbart, 1903.
