Abstract

A new species of the genus Belloppia (Oribatida, Oppiidae) is described from New Zealand; Belloppia bellasp. nov. differs from all species of the genus by the presence of a distal row of clear barbs on the bothridial heads and the median part of the tripartite rostrum strongly protruding and distinctly longer than the lateral parts. Supplementary descriptions for two species, Belloppia wallworkiHammer, 1968 and B. shealsiHammer, 1968 are given based on new material from New Zealand. A revised generic diagnosis and an identification key to known species of Belloppia are presented.
