The genus Caligohomus Habeeb contains mites that live in aquatic or semi-aquatic habitats and is one of the more mysterious genera of the family Stigmaeidae. Herein we redefine the genus, redescribe the type species, C. aquaticus and describe a new species, C. durus from Florida, USA. We also discuss the relationship of Caligohomus to Cheylostigmaeus and to the family Homocaligidae.
