Abstract

A new sand-mite Whartonia furcappa Wen & Zhou, sp. nov. is described from a bat in Dechang County, Sichuan Province, China. This new species is characterized by a forked microseta k on both genua and tibia (microgenuala and microtibiala) of leg I. Otherwise, this species accords with the giganism seen in the genus Whartonia, including very long legs, IP=2607.
