Two new species of oribatid mites of the family Galumnidae, Pergalumna minituberculata sp. nov. and Carinogalumna alineata sp. nov., are described from soil of secondary mixed broadleaved forest with bamboo in eastern Nepal. The genus Carinogalumna is recorded for the first time in the Oriental region. Pergalumna minituberculata sp. nov. is similar morphologically to Pergalumna longisetosa Balogh, 1960 and Pergalumna paralongisetosa Ermilov & Kalúz, 2012, however, it differs from both by the body size, length of bothridial and adanal setae, absence of porose areas Ad, and the presence of notogastral setae c, medial pore, postanal porose area, striate genital plates and striate bands in anogenital region. Carinogalumna alineata sp. nov. is similar morphologically to Carinogalumna montana Engelbrecht, 1973, however, it differs from the latter by the absence of a prodorsal keel, morphology of prodorsal setae and the presence of an anterior notogastral margin. An identification key to the known species of Carinogalumna is given.
