Abstract


The genus Oribotritia (Acari: Oribatida: Oribotritiidae) was represented in New Zealand by six species prior to this work. In this paper, three species of Oribotritia from New Zealand are described, including two new species, Oribotritia mangamuka sp. nov. and Oribotritia bilaminae sp. nov., and a known species with some variation. A key to all known species of Oribotritia in New Zealand is also provided.
