Keywords:Lepidoptera, Pyralidae, Pyralinae, Tyndis, Pithyllis, new species, taxonomy, morphology, Arabian Peninsula, Oman
Occurrences of the genera Pithyllis Grünberg, 1910 and Tyndis Ragonot, 1881 are reported for the first time for the Arabian Peninsula based on records collected in Southern Oman (Dhofar). Tyndis megistalis Hampson, 1906 is reported as new for the fauna of the Arabian Peninsula. Pithyllis dhofaralis Seizmair, sp. n. is described as new for science. The externally most similar species are Pithyllis mirei Leraut, 2009 and Pithyllis pallidalis Leraut, 2007, from which the new species is distinguished primarily in the male genital morphology. The male adult and the male genitalia are figured. The female is still unknown.
