Four new species of Dilyta (D. australafricana sp. n., D. ghanana sp. n., D. kenyana sp. n. and D. somaliana sp. n.) are described from the Afrotropical region, and the only previously known species of this genus from this region, D. africana (Benoit), is redescribed. These five species have two small apical carinae on the apex of the scutellum, instead of the -shaped carina characteristic of the Dilyta species from the rest of the world. A key to the Afrotropical species of Dilyta and a checklist for all records of Afrotropical Charipinae are provided.
