Abstract: Raunolina Gnezdilov & Wilson, 2006 erected as a subgenus of Perissana
Metcalf, 1952 is upgraded to generic level. Raunolina remanei sp. nov. is
described from northeastern Sudan, which is the first record of the genus and
the tribe Adenissini Dlabola, 1980 from tropical Africa, and R. jeddahica sp.
nov. is described from western Saudi Arabia. Two new combinations are provided:
Raunolina circularis (Linnavuori, 1952), comb. nov. and Raunolina arabica
(Gnezdilov & Wilson, 2006), comb. nov.; R. arabica is recorded for the first
time from Yemen. A key to separate the genera Perissana and Raunolina as well
as a key to species of Raunolina are given. The global distribution of
Adenissini is discussed.
