2013 - Volume: 53 Issue: 3 pages: 315-321
Two new galumnellid mites, Galumnella parageographica n. sp. and Porogalumnella microsetosa n. sp., are described from Indian soils. Galumnella parageographica n. sp. is morphologically most similar to G. geographica Mahunka, 1995 from Malaysia, from which it differs by tuberculated pteromorphs, the presence of a median pore on the notogaster and monodactylous legs. Porogalumnella microsetosa n. sp. is morphologically most similar to P. reducta Mahunka, 1995 from Malaysia, from which it differs by the presence of polygonal ornamentation in the anogenital region and nearly smooth sensilli. An identification key to the known species of Porogalumnella is provided.
