Abstract

An annotated checklist of the Cuban oribatid mites (Acari, Oribatida) collected in leaf litter from Alejandro de Humboldt National Park, Valle de Vinales National Park and Cayo Santa Maria is provided; it includes 60 species from 48 genera and 33 families; of these, 30 species, 12 genera and 4 families are recorded for the first time in Cuba, and 4 species, 2 genera and 1 family are recorded for the first time in the Neotropical region. Two new species, belonging to the genera Eupelops (Phenopelopidae) and Malaconothrus (Malaconothridae), are described. Eupelops fusiformis Ermilov n. sp. differs from E. geminus (Berlese, 1916), E. occultus (Koch, 1835) and E. torulosus (Koch, 1839) by the presence of welldeveloped notogastral setae p2 and p3 and medially concave anterior notogastral tectum. Malaconothrus humboldtensis Ermilov n. sp. differs from M. robustus Hammer, 1958 by the presence of long notogastral setae e1, e2, h2 and p2 and simple rostral setae.
