The genus Bana Londt, 1992 is revised. This Afrotropical genus, endemic to southern Africa, has been monotypic until now, the only known species being B. apicida Londt, 1992 from Namibia. A second species, B. madiba sp. n., is here described from South Africa thus significantly extending the known generic distribution. A key for the separation of the species is provided while the taxonomy, distribution and biology for the group is discussed.
