Namaquanula bruynsii Snijman. a rare species of Amaryllidaceae from the Landsberg in southern Namibia described here, is separated from N. bruce-bayeri by plane leaves, the absence of a perigone tube and the lack of a short adaxial hook at the base of each filament. Shared specialized characters are brittle, tan-coloured bulb tunics and short papillae at the base of each filament. A revised description of Namaquanula D.Müll.-Doblies & U.Müll.-Doblies is given and a key to the gen­era of Amaryllideae subtribe Strumariinae is provided.
