Abstract

Two new species of oribatid mites of the genus Pilizetes (Oribatida, Galumnidae) are described from litter and soil in the Korup National Park (Cameroon). Pilizetes paradudichi sp. nov. differs from Pilizetes dudichi Balogh, 1966 by the presence of long interlamellar setae and clearly longer notogastral setae. Pilizetes parasellnicki sp. nov. differs from Pilizetes sellnicki Balogh, 1958 by the presence of thickened, heavily ciliated and long epimeral setae 3b, 4a, 4b and 4c.
