Three species of the family Orbitestellidae are recognized from Oman. The first, Orbitestella bermudezi (Aguayo & Borro, 1946) was previously known from the tropical Atlantic Ocean. It is also recorded from the Red Sea. The two remaining species are new to science and require a new genus. Boschitestella nov. gen. with B. donaldi nov. sp. , known from Oman, Red Sea, Thailand and Indonesia and B. eloiseae nov. sp. only known from Oman are assigned to this new genus.
