The type material of Naushonia perrieri (Nobili, 1904) from Djibouti, Red Sea is described and figured. The newly designated lectotype male and paralectotype female are deposited in the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris. Both specimens are in very poor condition and had never been reexamined since their original description by Nobili, which contains a number of mistakes. A key to the known species of Naushonia is provided.
