The Arabian species of the rare ant genus Parasyscia Emery, 1882 are reviewed. Two species are treated, P. rifati sp. n. and P. wittmeri (Collingwood, 1985). Parasyscia rifati sp. n. is described from the Asir Mountains, Saudi Arabia based on the worker and ergatoid gyne castes. A key to both species is presented. New locality records with a distribution map and biological notes are presented.
