Deleted = gone!
Either you get the necessary info from a backup or you can go from memory and redefine the group ad readd the members and the permissions.
Do that through the ACP and DO NOT start adding and editing in the database unless you really know what you are doing (probably not or you wouldn't request support).
This might seem a daunting task but the data has been deleted from the database so there not much choice. :cry:
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)

As above - but I would go for the database restore option as it will be quicker and easier
