Systematics Mochloribatula Plant-inhabitants


The oribatid mite genus Mochloribatula is discussed and its placement in the family Mochlozetidae is supported. Like other members of the family they are primarily plant-inhabitants. Two new species are proposed: M. bahamensis from halophilic shrubs in the Bahama Islands and M. metzi from Spartina alterniflora in North Carolina. Eremaeus jloridanus, Notaspis depilis and. N. texana are included in Mochloribatula and the ontogeny of M. texana is described in part.
