Abstract

Two new species of oribatid mites of the monotypic genus Neophysobates (Oribatida, Tegoribatidae) from high alpine cushion fields in the Pisa Range, South Island, New Zealand are described. Neophysobates zealandicus n. sp. differs from N. monodactylus by the presence of bothridial seta with simple stalk and clavate, rounded distally head, a short adanal lyrifissure, and thickened seta pvö with attenuate tip on tarsus II. Neophysobates incrassatus n. sp. differs from N. monodactylus by the presence of bidactylous legs, three pairs of notogastral porose areas, thin rostral seta and tutorium without free tip. An identification key to the known species of Neophysobates is provided.
