A new species of Neobarombiella Bolz & Wagner, 2012, a galerucine genus recently described from continental sub-Saharan Africa, is here described from Socotra Island, Yemen. Neobarombiella socotrana sp. nov. is most similar to N. nigrocaerulea (Jacoby, 1897), N. nigrita (Jacoby, 1894), N. punctata (Laboissière, 1920), and N. punctatolineata (Jacoby, 1899), but can be distinguished from these species by both external and genital characters. An updated key to the species of the Afrotropical genus Neobarombiella is given.
