Nebalia deborahae new species is described from samples collected in coastal shelf zones off Namibia and Angola, in 2004 and 2008. The genus Nebalia is now represented in West and South Africa by three species. The new species differs from other African species in the length/width ratio of the rostrum, in the armature of the fourth segment of the antennule, in the dentation on the dorsal side of pleonites 6 and 7, and in the shape of the posterolateral corner of the epimeron of the fourth pleonite.
