Abstract

A new diagnosis and the type genus of Macrodinychidae fam. nov. are given with the description of a new and very extreme macrodinychid mite (Macrodinychus tanduk sp. nov.) from Sumatra, Indonesia. The two horn-like processes formed on the anterior region of idiosoma, a strongly sclerotized half-ring-like court situated posterior to genital opening and the large and semicircular pygidial shield are unusual character states within the family Macrodinychidae. A new, updated key to the macrodinychid species is given.
