Two new oribatid mite species, Austrocarabodes (Uluguroides) kluttzi Ermilov, Winchester, Lowman & Wassie sp. nov. (Carabodidae) and Pilobatella lowmanae Ermilov, Winchester & Wassie sp. nov. (Haplozetidae), are described from Afro-montane forests in the northern highlands of Ethiopia. An identification key to all known species of Pilobatella is given. An annotated checklist of identified oribatid mite taxa sampled in this studyis presented. Fourteen species, six genera and three families are recorded for the first time from Ethiopia. © 2012 Systematic & Applied Acarology Society. Source

A new oribatid mite genus, Valbehanella gen. nov., with type species, V. freestatensis sp. nov., is proposed and described from South Africa. The genus is tentatively included in Unduloribatidae, and if so would be the first record of this family from the southern hemisphere. Valbehanella gen. nov. can clearly be distinguished from the two other unduloribatid genera by lacking a lenticulus, having differently positioned notogastral setae and thinner cerotegument and simple lamellar cusps. © 2012 Systematic & Applied Acarology Society.

Two new oribatid mite species, Hermannobates bifurcatus sp. nov. (Hermanniellidae) and Xenillus brevisetosus sp. nov. (Liacaridae), are described from Ecuador. Hermannobates bifurcatus sp. nov. is similar to Hermannobates monstruosus Hammer in having the combination of a tuberculate prodorsum, foveolate notogaster, and long setiform prodorsal and exuvial notogastral setae and sensilli. However it clearly differs from the latter by having some bifurcate epimeral setae, the surface of the prodorsum, and the lengths of some notogastral setae. Xenillus brevisetosus sp. nov. is similar to Xenillus davisorum J. & P. Balogh in having the combination of the same body surface sculpture and the morphology of the lamellar complex, sensilli, and prodorsal and notogastral setae. However it clearly differs from the latter by the length of the lamellar cusps, interlamellar setae and notogastral setae h1, and number of genital setae. An identification key to Ecuadorian species of Xenillus is presented. © 2012 Systematic & Applied Acarology Society. Source

A new species of mites Pediculaster ethiopicus sp. nov. (Acari: Pygmephoridae) is described from the forest litter from Ethiopia. The new species belongs to the "calcaratus" species group along with Pediculaster calcaratus (Mahunka, 1965), Pediculaster ensifer (Savulkina, 1978) and Pediculaster clavipes Mahunka, 1975. Although this species group could be placed in the subgenus Neopediculaster, that subgenus is not supported by apomorphic characters and requires further study. We define the calcaratus group based on apomorphic character states and provide a key to its species. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC. Source

In 2009-2010, a total of 99 species, 75 genera and 45 families of oribatid mites in Ethiopia were registered. Of these, 89 species, 55 genera and 26 families are first records for the country. The updated list of oribatids of Ethiopia includes 128 species, 94 genera and 55 families. An annotated checklist oribatid mite taxa of Ethiopia with known distributions is provided.
