Abstract

Die Selenoribatidae, eine thalassobionte Familie der Hornmilben (Oribatei). - Selenoribatids are recorded from the coasts of 3 continents (fig. l, 2), where they inhabit different littoral formations . 5 species are known: Selenoribates joveiventris STRENZKE, 1961; S. mediterraneus GRANDJEAN, 1966; S. ghardaqens1:s ABD-EL-HAMID, 1974; Thalassozetes riparius ScHUSTER, 1963; Schusteria littorea GRANDJEAN, 1968; undescribed species exist (a monography of selenoribatids is in preparation). The correct nomenclature is: Selenoribatidae GRANDJEAN, 1966, not ScHUSTER, 1963 sensu BALOGH. Selenoribatids are probably carnivorous; sometimes rests of tardigrads have been found in the gut.
