The following species and subspecies are known from the Afrotropical Region. The countries listed are only those within this region. Species noted as 'introduced' are considered to be introduced into at least one country within the region (but may be native in other countries). Endemic species (those known only from this region) are noted except where the genus is endemic, in which case all of the listed species are endemic.
