Abstract

This study aims to review the species of Oribatula s. str. Berlese recorded in Romanian fauna, according to the most recent monographs and catalogues, but taking the original description and/or subsequent mentions into account, as well. Rich faunistic material was examined for this purpose, collected from various ecosystem types and from most regions of the country. Six species are analyzed from a morphological and biometrical point of view. In this context, reasons to consider Oribatula amblyptera Berlese, 1916 and O. sitnikovae Iordansky, 1991 as valid species are pointed out. A brief description and illustration of each species are given, along with data on their local distribution and ecology. An identification key is proposed.
