Technomyrmex montaseri sp. n. is described and illustrated from Oman based on the worker caste collected in Bani Sur. It belongs to the Technomyrmex gibbosus-group, with closest resemblance to T. vexatus (Santschi, 1919) and T. gibbosus W. M. Wheeler, 1906. A key to the Arabian Technomyrmex is given. © Mostafa R.

Cataglyphis fisheri sp. n. is described and illustrated from the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia based on the worker caste. It belongs to the C. pallida-group which is recorded for the first time from the Arabian Peninsula. Cataglyphis fisheri sp. n. is similar to C. pallida Mayr, 1877 from Kazakhstan. Differential diagnosis between these two species is given and a key to the species of the C. pallida-group is presented. Cataglyphis laylae Collingwood, 2011 is treated as a junior synonym of Cataglyphis saharae Santschi, 1929. Cataglyphis flavobrunnea Collingwood & Agosti, 1996 is redescribed and a lectotype for this species is designated. © Mostafa R. Sharaf et al.

Synonymy of two Arabian Monomorium Mayr, 1855 species is proposed: Monomoriumexiguum Forel, 1894 = Monomoriumdesertorum Collingwood & Agosti, 1996, syn. n.; Monomoriumsubopacum Smith, 1858 = Monomoriummintiribe Collingwood & Agosti, 1996, syn. n. A lectotype for Monomoriumvenustum Smith, 1858 is designated. Information on nesting habits of Monomoriumexiguum and Monomoriumvenustum in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are provided for the first time. Recently collected records for Monomoriumexiguum, Monomoriumsubopacum, and Monomoriumvenustum from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates are listed.
