Two New Species and a New Record of Oppioid Mites (Acari: Oribatida) from Turkey

Kence, Aykut
Two new species Oppiella (Perspicuoppia) ozkani sp. n. and Epimerella ankaraensis sp. n. are recorded from Aegean region of Turkey (Izmir province) and pine forest in the province of Ankara in Turkey, respectively. The principal diagnostic features of the new species Oppiella (Perspicuoppia) ozkani sp. n. are shape of notogastral crista and humeral process and shape of costula. The new species Epimerella ankaraensis diferentiated from the other species of genus by entire rostrum. This is the first records of subgenus Subiasella (Dividoppia) of oppiid mites from Turkey. Subiasella (Dividoppia) aperta (Mahunka, 1987) recorded from Eastern Anatolian region of Turkey (Erzurum province) and redescribed.

Kunt, Kadir; Elverici, Mert; Özkütük, Recep; Yagmur, Ersen (Pensoft Publishers, 2011-11-4)
Two new species, Harpactea arnedoi sp. n. and H. kencei sp. n., are described on the basis of both sexes from the eastern Mediterranean and Aegean regions of Turkey. H. kencei sp. n. can be easily distinguished from all other Turkish and European representatives of the genus by the structure of the flattened, massive embolus on the male copulatory organ. Although resembling Stalagtia in palpal morphology, we describe one of the new species as Harpactea arnedoi sp. n. For both Turkish species, detailed morph...
