Two new species of oribatid mites of the family Lohmanniidae viz. Annectacarus hammerae and Cryptacarus keralensis are described from Calicut University Campus, Kerala, India. The unique combination of features of A. hammerae which enable its demarcation from all known species include the roughened nature of median notogastral setae c1, d1 and e1, and bilaterally barbed nature of prodorsal setae except seta le. Cryptacarus keralensis is distinguished from other known members of the genus by its weakly developed ano-adanal suture and epimeral setal formula of 6-4-4-4. A key to Cryptacarus is provided.
