New Galumnidae (Acari, Oribatida) from Ecuador

Sergey G. Ermilov

Abstract


Two new species of the oribatid mite family Galumnidae are described from Ecuador. Galumna napoensis sp. nov. differs from Galumna nonoensis Balogh, 1988 by the pointed rostrum and rostral setae distinctly longer than rostral setae, and the presence of tubercles posterior to dorsosejugal suture. Pergalumna finnamorei sp. nov. differs from Pergalumna lenticulata Ermilov & Friedrich, 2016 by the pointed rostrum, long interlamellar setae, stria forming reticulate pattern in anterior parts of prodorsum, notogaster and pteromorphs, rostral setae distinctly longer than rostral setae, localization of porose area Aa between la and lm, postanal porose area and reticulate epimere I, and the absence of foveoles on notogaster, pteromorphs and in anogenital region.
