The genus Andrahomanus Pic, 1903 is redescribed along with Andrahomanus luteipes Pic, 1903 and Anthicus particularis Pic, 1932. Five species of the genus are described as new: A. crassicornis sp. nov. (South Africa), A. opacus sp. nov. (Namibia), A. ovaliceps sp. nov. (South Africa), A. sabulicola sp. nov. (South Africa), A. scholaris sp. nov. (Namibia, Botswana). A new combination, Andrahomanus particularis (Pic, 1932) comb. nov. (transferred from Anthicus Paykull, 1798), is proposed. A lectotype is designated for Anthicus particularis Pic, 1932. A key to species of Andrahomanus is provided.
