The three Afrotropical genera of Tephritidae comprising the Gymnosagena group are revised: Elgonina Munro (including E. fuscana Munro, E. refulgens Munro, and seven new species: E. dimorphica, E. flavicornis, E. inexpectata, E. infusctata, E. pollinosa. E. splendida and E. yaromi); Gymnosagena Munro (including G. unicornuta Munro and four new species: G. campiglossina, G. kakamega, G. longicauda and G. nyikaensis), and Marriottella Munro (including M. exquisita Munro and M. sepsoides n. sp.). A lectotype is designated for Gymnosagena unicornuta. A cladistic analysis of the group supports the current classification.
