Abstract

New material of water mites (Acari: Hydrachnidia) from the Uttarakhand State of India is reported, including a new species, Kongsbergia indicasp.nov. (Aturidae), and new records of the species Sperchon garhwalensis Kumar, Kumar & Pešić, 2007, Sperchon indicus Kumar, Kumar & Pešić, 2007, and Atractides indicusPešić & Smit, 2007. Moreover, in the light of the newly discovered male of Torrenticola turkestanica (Sokolow, 1926), populations from South Korea and Thailand formerly assigned to the latter species are here attributed to two new species, i.e., T. wonchoelisp.nov. and T. rangareddyisp.nov., respectively.
