KeywordsOribatidae new species Kerala biodegradation
An extensive survey on the oribatid fauna of Kerala and neighbouring areas revealed the occurrence of several new species. The preliminary study on the biology indicates their potential in the biodegradation of the residues of higher plants, particularly materials of woody and leafy nature. In the present paper is found the description of a new species of Meristacarus.
