AppCleaner and similar software don't generally do as good of a job of removing unwanted software than the software's own uninstaller. Try installing KisMAC again and then run the uninstaller. If that doesn't get the job done contact the developer.

kisMAC does not provide an uninstaller. I am curious in what (plist?) file Lion keeps this Location Servces app list.
I'll contact the developper for shure...

In the future don't put software on your Mac that requires an installer and doesn't provide an uninstaller. If KisMAC doesn't have an uninstaller and won't/can't provide directions for its software back up your Mac and use EasyFind (free App Store download) to search your Mac for "KisMe" without the quotes. Check to include Package Contents and Invisible Files & Folders. Right click the search results and select Move to Trash. Restart and make sure your Mac is working as expected before emptying the trash. That will only work if KisMac conveniently included the name of its software in files that insist on keeping its tentacles int your system.

Thanks Peggy, I already did a grep on ~/Library files, but I'll try EasyFind also. I'll let you know when I succeed, also if the developper offered some help.

No luck so far, found two other posts though mentioning the same problem. The apps in these lists are different from kismac however, so it seems to be a Lion problem. I guess/hope it will be fixed in one of the coming updates.

I reinstalled Lion, the Location Services app list is now empty!
Thanks to everybody who gave this some time,

Theres gotta be an easier way than reinstalling the whole OS!

My thoughts exactly, couldn't find it though. It's solved now, but if you know an easier way please let us know!

Any updates on this thread ? I am still stuck with the KisMac icon in Location Services.
I think there must be a solution. I found that deleting the locationd system file would clear the list but then location services wouldn't stay enabled.
Any body found the solution ?
Thanks in advance.

Just found a solution here :
1) Open Terminal
2) Enter super user : sudo su
3) cd /var/folders/zz/
4) ls -l and find folder owned by _locationd
5) cd <this_folder>
6) cd C
7) nano clients.plist
8) Remove the entries you want to remove from location services list. KisMac should be in this list. Remove both the <key>...</key> and <dict>..</dict> parts each time
9) killall locationd
Open System Preferences, should now be gone

What did you type exaclty ?
What I meant by cd <this_folder> is cd "name_of_the_folder_found_in_step_4"

You can use Easyfind (as Peggy said) or FindAnyFile (both free) and search for "kismac" or "kism", without the quotes (the search is caps independant). In Easyfind you see where it is, when you rightclick you can "reveal in Finder". In FindAnyFile you can click on it and you see where it is below and rightclick allows you to delete.
