AbstractThe D2 expansion region of 28S rDNA and the smaller D3 region of Afrocampsis griseosetosus van Achterberg & Quicke, 1990, were analysed. Molecular and morphological evidence indicate that Afrocampsis is the sister group of Urosigalphus + Canalicephalus (forming a separate clade close to the tribe Diospilini) or that it is associated with a group of the subfamily Helconinae s.s.
