Abstract
    As no book or article gives a complete overview of the small genus Afer Conrad, 1858 and species are often confused, this article aims at helping both scientists and collectors to identify all members of the aforementioned genus in an easy way. For that purpose, all species are discussed in alphabetical order and clearly illustrated. Some remarks are added for individual species as well as for the genus as a whole. Moreover, the history of the genus is briefly discussed.
