Abstract: Field surveys in the rocky south-east coast of Iran and northern part of the Gulf of Oman were conducted during a period from October 2014 to March 2015. The Asterinid seastars Patiriella paradoxa (Campbell and Rowe), Aquilonastra watersi (O’Loughlin and Rowe) and Aquilonastra iranica (Mortensen) are reported for the first time from the Iranian coast. The morphological taxonomy and the ecology of these asteroids are discussed in this work.
