The major aim of the paper was to provide a description of a new species Microuroobovella olszanowskii (Acari: Uropodina) from Italy. The species has been found in a large number in rotten wood of the cork oak (Quercus suber L.) in Toscania. The morphology of the species is considerably different from other European species described so far, which proves that the species is new to science, and, what is more important, it is also a new genus in the suborder of Uropodina. Moreover, the species seems to be related to species from the genus of Uroobovella sensu Hirschmann.
