The African species of the genus Similipepsis Le Cerf, 1914 with the exception of Similipepsis ekisi Wang, 1984 are reviewed here. Similipepsis aurea Gaede 1929 and S. typica (Strand, 1913) are redescribed. Similipepsis osuni Bąkowski et Kallies sp. nov. from Nigeria as well as Similipepsis eumenidiformis Bartsch sp. nov. and Similipepsis maromizaensis Bartsch sp. nov., both from Madagascar, are described as new to science. The taxon Milisipepsis Gorbunov et Arita, 1995, originally erected to accommodate the Asian Similipepsini species, was found to be a junior synonym of Similipepsis. A key to the males of Similipepis species is provided.
