Oribatid mites (Acari: Oribatida) from the coastal region of Portugal. IV. The genera Coronoquadroppia, Scheloribates, Haplozetes and Pilobates


Abstract

Four new species of Oribatida were found in soils of different coastal habitats in South Portugal. Scheloribates litoralis sp. n. is the first halophilous species of the subgenus Scheloribates (Scheloribates), living in the upper salt marsh zone in the estuary of Ribeiro de Aljezur (Western Algarve) and also in the Lagoon of Aveiro (North Portugal). All other described and redescribed species occur mainly in coastal bush-land in the estuary region of the Ribeira de Aljezur (Western Algarve): Scheloribates ibericus sp. n. and the similar S. minifimbriatus Mínguez, Subías & Ruiz, 1986 (Scheloribatidae), Haplozetes differens sp. n., H. similis (Gil & Subías, 1995), Pilobates carpetanus Pérez-Iñigo, 1969 (Haplozetidae) and Coronoquadroppia guttata sp. n. (Quadroppiidae). Taxonomical and systematical discussions are presented on all species and on the genus Haplozetes.
