Abstract
Two new species of oribatid mites of the genus Galumna (Oribatida, Galumnidae) are described based on specimens from upper soil and leaf litter in a primary evergreen lowland rainforest in Amazonian Peru. Galumna (Galumna) parazeucta n.sp. is morphologically most similar to Galumna (Galumna) neonominata Subías 2004 and G. (Galumna) pterolineata Hammer, 1972, but differs by the presence of strongly elongated notogastral porose areas Aa and A3. Galumna (Cosmogalumna) ekaterinae n.sp. is morphologically most similar to Galumna (C.) areticulata Ermilov, Sandmann, Klarner, Widyastuti and Scheu, 2015, but differs by the presence of three pairs of notogastral porose areas and epimeral setae 3c and 4c. The subgenus Galumna (Cosmogalumna) and species Galumna (Galumna) nuda Engelbrecht, 1972 are recorded in the Neotropical region for the first time; two species – Galumna (G.) angularis Jeleva, Scull and Cruz, 1984 and Galumna (G.) laselvae Balogh 1997 – are recorded in Peru for the first time.
