New species of the genera Diplobodes and Machadocepheus (Acari, Oribatida, Carabodidae) from Thailand, with remarks on some related genera
Two new species of oribatid mites of the family Carabodidae are described from litter in Thailand. Diplobodes parakanekoi sp. n. differs from Diplobodes kanekoi, D. africanus and D. aokii by fewer notogastral setae in the c-row, different number of notogastral tubercles, presence of a translamella, and the localization of dorsal notogastral setae. Machadocepheus pararachii sp. n. differs from Machadocepheus rachii by the positions of dorsal notogastral setae c1, da and la. The generic status of the related genera Diplobodes, Machadocepheus, Gibbicepheus, Gibbibodes, Kalloia, Neocarabodes, Sagittabodes and Zimbabweae is discussed.
