Abstract
    This paper describes a new species of muricid, Favartia paulboschi, from Oman. The shell, operculum and radula are illustrated. This species was first noticed in December 1980 on Masirah, Oman and since then 19 living and 28 dead examples have been recorded from Masirah and the mainland near Muscat, Oman.
