Abstract

The genus Afroleius Mahunka, 1984 was proposed for three species (A. deformis, A. minor and A. simplex) and is so far known only from South Africa. New species (not yet described) have been identified from the Oribatida collection of the National Museum in Bloemfontein, South Africa. An overview of the genus, including an analysis of character states on genus level and an investigation of its relationships, is presented. Habitat preferences and distribution are also discussed.
