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.
