Abstract

The oribatid mite taxa (Acari, Oribatida), superfamily Oripodoidea, families Scheloribatidae and Caloppiidae, genera Scheloribates Berlese, 1908 and Zetorchella Berlese, 1916, and the species Zetorchella orbiculata (Wen & Zhao, 1994), are recorded in Myanmar for the first time. Two new oripodoid species are described: Scheloribates natmaensis sp. nov. (Scheloribatidae) is most similar to S. yamaeensis Nakamura, Hashimoto, Nishi, Nakamura & Fujikawa, 2015, but differs by the larger body size, narrowly triangular rostrum, clavate, rounded distally bothridial setae and longitudinal stria on the notogaster; Zetorchella taungensis sp. nov. (Caloppiidae) is most similar to Z. nortoni Ermilov, Sidorchuk & Rybalov, 2010, but differs by the larger body size, longer notogastral setae, bothridial setae shorter than humeral notogastral setae c and notogastral setae c and p1 similar in length.
