Oestophora prietoi n. sp. and O. mariae n. sp. are described from Andalusia in southern Iberia, and Suboestophora ebria Corbella, 2004 is assigned to the genus Oestophora Hesse. These three species are compared with all known Oestophora species from the Iberian Peninsula, along with other related species from north Africa that are cited in the older literature. Future anatomical (north African species), molecular (in general) and biogeographical studies are required to improve the knowledge about the phylogeny of this and other related genera.
