    Keywords: Oribatida, desert, Chile, Licnodamaeolus n. gen., Licnodamaeolus travei n. sp.

    During field research held in the coastal, fog-influenced zones of a Chilean desert (Paposo, 25 degrees 00'S; 70 degrees 26'W), the oribatid fauna has been studied. A species was found, related to Licnodamaeus, but separated from it by important differences. A new genus is described, Licnodamaeolus, based on this new species, named L. travei. This oribatid was found in very dry soils under Euphorbia lactiflua Phil.
