Abstract

A new species of oribatid mites of the family Cepheidae is described based on adults from rainforest in Chile. Sadocepheus nortonroyisp. nov. differs from Sadocepheus foveolatus by the larger body size, the presence of transverse notogastral ridge and divergent lamellar cusps, and the location of notogastral setae on the notogastral surface. Explanations on placement of some species in Sadocepheus are presented. An identification key to known species of Sadocepheus is given.
