Abstract:
Two new species of oribatid mites of the family Lohmanniidae are described from litter in the mixed forest of Zanzibar, Tanzania. Annectacarus tanzanicussp. nov. differs from Annectacarus vinalesensis Ermilov & Tolstikov, 2015 by body size, the number of neotrichal notogastral setae, porose parts on the notogaster and branches on bothridial setae, and the localization of rostral setae. Strinatacarus zanzibarensissp. nov. differs from Strinatacarus aelleniMahunka, 1977 by body surface and length of some notogastral setae. Tritonymphal instar of Annectacarus tanzanicussp. nov. is also described. An identification key to the known species of the genus Annectacarus from the Ethiopian region is presented.
