Abstract

Two new species of oribatid mites of the genus Allogalumna (Oribatida, Galumnidae) are described based on adult specimens from leaf litter in the Montagne d‘Ambre National Park of Madagascar. Allogalumna paramadagascarensis sp. n. differs from Allogalumna madagascarensis by the morphology of notogastral porose areas Aa. Allogalumna paravojnitsi sp. n. differs from Allogalumna vojnitsi by the morphology of notogastral porose areas Aa and length of lamellar setae. An identification key to Allogalumna species from Madagascar is presented.
