This paper describes and illustrates three new species from Oman, Anachis raysutana, Costoanachis rassierensis and Latiris bonnieae, and illustrates the lectotype, protoconch, operculum and radula of Anachis fauroti (Jousseaume 1888). The first three are from areas associated with the upwellings in the North Arabian Sea and affected by the south-west monsoon and the last named has a wider distribution from the Gulf of Aden to the Mekran coast and within the Arabian Gulf. Latirus bonnieae is the only species in this paper of which the animal and radula are unknown.
