Eleven species of Trox are recorded from the Kruger National Park, Republic of South Africa, and their distribution mapped. Six of these have a widespread distribution in the Ethiopian region. Elements of tropical northern (e.g. T. mutabilis Haat), eastern (e.g. T. unguicularis Haaf) and south west arid (e.g. T. zumpti Haaf) faunas in the Park are discussed. Trox radula damarinus Per. is re-established as a valid species on account of its distribution and the male genitalia.
