Abstract

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.
