This paper reports on some interesting taxa recently found in the Arabian Peninsula and the island ofSocotra. Among them is a new species of brachypterous grasshopper Sphodromerus carapezzanus sp. n.(Acrididae: Calliptaminae), described from an isolated area in Dhofar (Oman). A female Heteracris hemiptera(Uvarov, 1935) (Acrididae: Eyprepocnemidinae) is reported, with morphological characters which donot fully comply with those of any known subspecies. Two species, hitherto rarely documented, are alsoreported, Phaneroptila insularis Uvarov, 1957 (Tettigoniidae: Phaneropterinae) from Socotra and Cataloipusthomasi Uvarov, 1933 (Acrididae: Eyprepocnemidinae) from Oman. Pycnodictya dentata Krauss,1902 (Acrididae: Oedipodinae) is reported from Saudi Arabia, constituting a new record for the country.
