Abstract

Water mites of the genus Neumania have been found worldwide. In the present study we used morphological data and DNA barcoding to describe a new species of the genus Neumania, N. kyrgyzica sp. nov. from Kyrgyzstan. The results supported the genetic separation between the new species and species examined in this study (N. deltoides, N. imitata, N. limosa, N. spinipes and N. vernalis). The lowest K2P divergence (11.7%) was found between the new species and N. limosa (Koch, 1836), a species widely distributed in the Palaearctic region. Morphologically, the new species seems to be most similar to N. alticola (Stoll, 1887), an abundant and widespread species in the extreme northern Neotropics.
