Abstract

A new species of oribatid mites of the family Galumnidae (Acari, Oribatida) is described from Samoa; Pergalumna enricoi sp. nov. differs from Pergalumna foveolata Hammer, 1973 by the elongate oval, transversely oriented notogastral porose areas Aa and heavily tuberculate prodorsum. An identification key to the known species of the genus Pergalumna from the Australian region is presented. A list of oribatid mite taxa of the Samoan Islands, including 77 species/subspecies from 56 genera and 29 families, is provided.
