Abstract

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.
