Abstract

Two new species of the sand-mite genus Leptotrombidium collected in China are described:. L. (Monosigmum) zhongi sg. & sp. nov. from Medog in Xizang Autonomous Region (Tibet), and L. (L.) shenzhense sp. nov. from Shenzhen in Guangdong Province. Leptotrombidium (M.) zhongi is characterized by one σ1 or one galeala on leg I (σ1 or g1 = 1) only and has a ‘genuotibial solenidial frame' 1111, a pattern that differs from that seen in the other three subgenera of Leptotrombidium (s.l.), all of which have the frame of 2111. L. (L.) shenzhense is characterized by a combination of small body, short and slender legs, sparse body setae and a shallow protruded scutum.
