Actumnus simplex Rathbun, 1911, described 100 years ago and never reported again since, is recorded for the first time from the Persian Gulf. The species is characterized by a prominently convex dorsal carapace surface, regions that are weakly defined, four serrated anterolateral teeth, and a gently serrated frontal margin with a distinct median notch. It is morphologically close to Neoactumnus convexus Sakai, 1965, and N. unispina Garth & Kim, 1983, both from the western Pacific, but is easily distinguishable by possessing a distinct median notch in the frontal margin.
