The central African representatives of the genus Trabea are revised. Trabea straeleni (Roewer 1960) is revalidated as a good species and redescribed. Trabea heteroculata Strand 1913 is redescribed, and two new species from Malawi are added: Trabea nigristernis new species nd Trabea setula new species. For comparison, a related southern African species, Trabea purcelli Roewer 1951, is redescribed. Some notes on the southern African Trabea ornatipalpis Russell-Smith 1982 are given together with a short zoogeographical discussion of the genus Trabea as a whole.
