The longhorned beetle genus Kudekanye (Cerambycidae: Apatophyseinae) new genus and Kudekanye suidafrika new species are described from the lowland fynbos and renosterveld ecosystem of southern Africa. The type species is characterized by large globose eyes with ventral lobes that nearly touch on the gena, dull brownish-yellow body color, five vague costae on each elytron, and antennae that are estimated to be 3.8 times the body length. Additionally, the recently described Afroartelida teunisseni, also in the Apatophyseinae, is recorded for the first time from Swaziland and Zimbabwe.
