Abstract

The oribatid mite genus Pergalumna Grandjean, 1936 (Acari: Oribatida: Galumnidae) comprises 111 species. We describe the species Pergalumna makarovae sp. nov., collected in moss on trees from Bale Mountains National Park (southern Ethiopia). The new species is distinguishable from other species of Pergalumna by the presence of the following character states in combination: smooth surface of body, clavate sensilli, minute interlamellar setae, three pairs of rounded notogastral areae porosae and complete dorsosejugal suture.
