The dytiscid fauna of the territory of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is an almostcompletely unknown component of the fauna of the Arabian Peninsula. Van Harten (2005)listed a single species of Dytiscidae – the cosmopolitan species Eretes sticticus (Linnaeus,1767) from the UAE. Nevertheless, the extensive entomological research of Antonius vanHarten in the years 2004–2007, together with several expeditions of other entomologistsrevealed the presence of 18 species of Dytiscidae, including two species new to science, andenables us to fill this gap in the knowledge of the fauna of the UAE
