Abstract

A new species of Stylaster (Group A, previously known as Allopora) is described from the southern coast of Oman, Arabian Sea. This region is known for its complex hydrography, which leads to a high diversity of marine life in shallow-water habitats. Stylaster omanensis n. sp. differs from all other described species of the genus in lacking dactylostyles.
