Abstract

Two new species of oribatid mites, Hermannobates dilatatus sp. nov. and Rhynchoribates longisetosus sp. nov., are described from Ecuadorian soils. Hermannobates dilatatus sp. nov. is most similar to H. ruseki Starý, 1998, however, it differs from the latter by the smaller body size, absence of flagelliform posterior notogastral setae, bacilliform exuvial setae d1E and e1E, longer adanal setae ad1 and bifurcate epimeral setae1a, 1c, 2a and 4b.Rhynchoribates longisetosus sp. nov. is most similar to R. insignis Balogh & Mahunka, 1969, however, it differs from the latter by the rostral setae bent backwards and long, flagelliform notogastral setae.
