Agnophilogenia Kennedy is shown to be a junior synonym of Philogenia Selys based on a comparison of diagnostic characters of the holotype 9 of its only known sp., A. monotis, with those of Philogenia spp. An analysis of the described spp. of Philogenia suggests that P. tinalandia Bick & Bick represents a junior synonym of P. monotis (Kennedy). The 6 holotype of P. tinalandia is illustrated and compared with the 9 holotype of A. monotis.
