Distribution of the Ripiphoridae (Coleoptera: Tenebrionoidea) in the Arabian Peninsula is evaluated. Six species belonging to the genera Macrosiagon Hentz, 1830 and Ripiphorus Bosc, 1791 are figured and keyed, and the distribution of each species is mapped. Including new and previously published records, the Ripiphoridae are now reported from 19 localities of the Arabian Peninsula and offshore islands. Coordinates for each exact locality are given.
