Abstract

Three new species of the alpheid shrimp genus Salmoneus Holthuis, 1955 are described from the Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia: S. farasan sp. nov. from the Farasan Islands; S. arabicus sp. nov. from Thuwal and Farasan Banks; and S. kausti sp. nov. from Thuwal. Salmoneus poupini Anker, 2011, previously known from French Polynesia and the Philippines, is reported for the first time from the Red Sea, based on material from Thuwal, Farasan Banks and Farasan Islands. In addition, the previously known distributional range of the closely related S. komaii Anker, 2011 is extended from the Mariana Islands to French Polynesia.
