Oribatida Cosmochthoniidae new subgenus new species Iberian Peninsula


This work describes two new species of cosmochthoniids, including a new subgenus, originating from an olive grove in the South of the Iberian Peninsula: Cosmochthonius (Nortonchthonius) oblongisetosus n. subgen. and n. sp. and Phyllozetes subiasi n. sp. Within the genus Cosmochthonius, the original and substantial modification of some posterior hysterosomal setae characterizes the new subgenus C. (Nortonchthonius). Within Phyllozetes, the erectile setae with strong dorsal and marginal spines are the specific character of P. subiasi n. sp.
