Abstract

Two new species of ceratozetoid oribatid mites (Acari, Oribatida, Ceratozetoidea) are described from alpine soils of the South Island of New Zealand. Magellozetes crassisetosus sp. nov. (Ceratozetidae) differs from known representatives of the genus (M. antarcticus antarcticus (Michael, 1895), M. antarcticus traegardhiSubías 2010 and M. processus Hammer, 1962) by shorter interlamellar setae and minute tutorial cusps. Pedunculozetes ovatum sp. nov. (Chamobatidae) differs from known representatives of the genus (P. andinusHammer, 1962 and P. minutus Hammer, 1967) by minute interlamellar setae and short bothridial stalks. Updated generic diagnoses for Magellozetes and Pedunculozetes are provided.
