Three new species of ptyctimous mites (Acari, Oribatida) from Côte D'Ivoire
The present study is based on ptyctimous oribatid mite material collected in Côte d’Ivoire in 2007. A list of identified taxa, including 9 species from 7 genera and 4 families, is provided; of these, three species are new for science, and other species are recorded in this country for the first time. Plonaphacarus longisetosus Niedbała sp. n. differs from congeners by the presence of long, similar in shape interlamellar and lamellar setae. Hoplophthiracarus brevispinus Niedbała sp. n. differs from Hoplophthiracarus spinus Niedbała et Starý, 2014 by longer and narrower sigillar fields equal in length, the absence of posterior furrows of prodorsum, the similar length and shape of interlamellar and lamellar setae, and by spiniform, rough and shorter notogastral setae. Atropacarus (Hoplophorella) paratuberculosissimus Niedbała sp. n. differs from congeners by the presence of tubercles on notogaster and very long sensilli and interlamellar setae.
