Abstract
    Two new muricids are described from southern Oman. Favartia (Pygmaepterys) dhojarensis n. sp. is not related to any other species from the same area but is compared to Favartia (Pygmaepterys) alfredensis (Bartsch, 1915) and F. (P.) maraisi (Yokes, 1978) from South Africa. Typhinellus mirbatensis n. sp. is compared with T. amoenus (Houart, 1994) from South Africa and Madagascar, Bozzetti, 2007 from Madagascar and the Gulf of Aden (new locality) and T. labiatus Cristofori & Jan, 1832 from the Mediterranean and northeastern Atlantic.
