Two Platorchestia species arc recorded from Israel and the Sinai: P. platensis from near the sea shore at Naqaz Jirada (Sinai), and P. monodi from near springs and wells at En Hameara in the Negev Desert. Platorchestia monodi is distinguished from P. platensis in having a smooth palmar margin on the propod of male gnathopod 2, and the dactyl of male gnathopod 1 distinctly shorter than the propod palm. The occurrence of inland species of Platorchestia is discussed.
