© 2017, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht. Centrorhynchus sarehae n. sp. is described from the lizard buzzard Kaupifalco monogrammicus (Temminik) in Louis Trichardt City, Limpopo Province, South Africa. The new species can be distinguished from all other species of Centrorhynchus Lühe, 1911 except C. gendrei (Golvan, 1957) and C. mariauxi Smales, 2011 in having a dilated region in the posterior trunk of the female. Centrorhynchus sarehae differs from both these species in the characters of the proboscis armature, particularly the number of hooks per row and the lengths of the longest hooks. This is the first record of a fully identified species of Centrorhynchus in South Africa.
