The genera of the subfamily Julodinae were revised by Holm (1979a), and the genus Neojulodis Kerremans by Holm (1979b). Subsequently, one new Neojulodis (Protojulodis) species was descriptionbed (Holm 1986). The new species of Neojulodis (Neojulodis) descriptionbed here is the first new member of this subgenus discovered in this century. It is an interesting species in that it seems to have a very restricted distribution in Namaqualand, while all other known species of this subgenus have rather wide Cape distributions.
