sp. n., a second apterous species of the genus, is described and illustrated and its chromosome number of 2n=16XY is recorded. It occurs in a few evergreen forests in the Mpumalanga Province of South Africa. Whereas most genera of apterous Carventinae have relatively small distribution areas, the opposite seems to be true of Heiss as the genus was originally described from Rwandain central Africa, more than 3000 km north of Mpumalanga. Keys to the two species and to all Carventinae genera of the Afrotropical Region are provided.
