Abstract

The adult instar of an oribatid mite, Papillacarus hirsutus (Aoki, 1961) is redescribed, including the first detailed descriptions of the gnathosoma and legs. Some morphological characters of P. hirsutus from different regions (Japan, Vietnam, China, Tahiti, Philippines) are analyzed, and P. arboriseta Jeleva and Vu, 1987 is recognized as a junior synonym of the former species.
