The spider egg parasitoid genus Cyphacolus Priesner is currently revised for the African, Oriental and Australasian regions. To date 13 new species have been identified from the previous 3 known species, increasing the total number of species worldwide to 16. Our research identified two potential species groups: the bouceki species group and the bhowaliensis species groups; based on our morphological study.
