Data on a new occurrence of Ps. aqabensis in the Sinai peninsula, Egypt, are presented. The specimens from the Taba prefecture are characterized by the morphological and genetic characters of Ps. aqabensis. All the specimens studied have their third toe longer than the fourth one, and males have four welldeveloped preanal pores separated from each other. The sequences of mtDNA (COI and ND2) and nuclear DNA (RAG1) fragments are similar to those of the specimens from the typical locality of Ps. aqabensis, including the Holotype. We assume that Ps. aqabensis has penetrates to the Sinai Peninsula from the Arabia. This direction is opposite to the Ps. sinaitus penetration from Africa to Arabia, which was proposed in our earlier paper based on the study of more than 150 sequences of mitochondrial (COI and ND2) and nuclear (RAG1) DNA of all Pseudotrapelus species from whole distributional range. It was shown very low genetic variability of Ps. sinaitus from the most south-western locality in African Egypt (Azraq) through the type locality of the species (mountain Sinai) to the north-eastern Jordan (Mquat). This indicates a very fast species expansion through the paleo-bridge that connecting Africa and Asia in the past. While recent features as geographic barriers – Red Sea, Suez and Aqaba bay, are not affecting the molecular-genetic structure of the species. The history of Ps. aqabensis и Ps. sinaitus colonization of this territory is complicated and needs further investigations.
