Abstract. Three species of Dentilla are recorded in the fauna of the United Arab Emirates. Dentilla rasnitsyni Lelej, sp.n. from UAE and Oman is described and figured. D. zarudnyi Lelej is newly recorded from those countries. The third species, Dentilla sp. 1, is not described here since it is known only by females, and therefore can actually be conspecific to any of the two remaining ones that are known only by males.
