A new species prinsi of the genus Namibimydas Hesse, originally described from the Namib Desert, is described from Paternoster on the west coast between Saldanha Bay and Stompneus. Some ecological notes on the habits of the new species are added, and supplementary notes to the original generic description are appended. A text-figure is given to illustrate the more important generic and specific characters of the new mydaid.
