Abstract

The new intertidal oribatid mite species Thalassozetes barbara n. sp. is characterised by a specific gastronotic cuticular reticulate pattern, 14 pairs of very short and blunt notogastral setae and long lamellar ridges. The occurrence on the island of Barbados represents the first record of the genus Thalassozetes in the Atlantic Ocean.
