[The genus Oxinasphaera Bruce, 1997, distributed throughout the Indo-West Pacific region, is composed of twenty-four named and a few unnamed species. Oxinasphaera penteumbonata n. sp. is here described from specimens from the Yemeni coast of the Arabian peninsula and from the Indian Ocean coast of Somalia. The species is characterized by five distinct, acute spikes on the epistome. A comparison is made with other species of the genus present in the Indian Ocean. The key to the world’s species of the genus is modified to host the new species.

Il genere Oxinasphaera Bruce, 1997, con distribuzione Indopacifica, annovera attualmente ventiquattro specie piu alcune non ancora descritte. La specie Oxinasphaera penteumbonata n. sp. viene descritta esaminando campioni provenienti dalle coste della Somalia e dello Yemen. Questa nuova specie risulta caratterizzata dalla morfologia dell’epistoma che presenta cinque acuti “spikes”. És stata effettuata una comparazione morfologica con le altre specie del genere e modificata la chiave dicotomica proposta da Bruce (1997) per accogliere anche questa nuova specie., The genus Oxinasphaera Bruce, 1997, distributed throughout the Indo-West Pacific region, is composed of twenty-four named and a few unnamed species.
