Anatomical examination of a series of samples of Vitrinidae from Africa indicates that the Genera Calidivitrina and Phenacolimax (Arabivitrina) are known from Central and East Africa only above 2000 m, while Phenacolimax (Oligolimax) only occurs in Libya up to 1000 m. Material is not specifically determined due to thc need for a complete revision of African Vitrinidae. A list of localities, including type localities for published species, is given with references and other published data.
