The Japanese blunthorn lobster Palinustus waguensis was recorded in the coastal waters of Oman in April and May 2015, and November 2018. The total length of lobsters ranged from 11.4 to 14.0 cm, weight was 48-109 g. The present report represents the first record of this rare species from the Gulf of Oman and expands its known range to the north-west of the Indian Ocean. Descriptions, illustrations, and morphometric data for specimens caught in 2015 are presented.
