Abstract

A new species of the genus Lamellarea (Oribatida, Lamellareidae) is described from nests of the termite Trinervitermes trinervoides (Sjöstedt) in the Franklin Game Reserve (Bloemfontein, South Africa). Lamellareakoki sp. nov. differs from all species of the genus by the following main morphological traits: lamellar cusps triangular, without anteromedial processes, separated; translamella long; rostrum with median indentation; several ridges located near tutoria. A revised generic diagnosis, an identification key to known species, and data on the distribution and ecology of Lamellarea are presented.
