Abstract

A new species of Adamystidae is described, Adamystis iranoturanianensis sp. nov. These mites were collected from soil, humus and litter in the southern parts of the Kamfiruz Region in Fars, Iran. This family comprises 16 species including the new species described herein. The new species differs from the other members of this family by: the fused, punctate and reticulate endopodal shield; possessing two pairs of plates in the genital region; and the unique coxal formula 1-3-2-2. This is the first record of this family from Iran.
