Abstract

An oribatid mite, Incabates barbatus sp. nov. in the family Haplozetidae is described herein from Korea. This new species is very similar to 1. major reported in Japan. However, prodorsal setae (ro & la) and head of sensillus are smooth in 1. major while barbs are found on the outer margin in the middle of rostral seta (ro) and lamellar seta (la) in addition to the presence of spinulae making the surface of head of sensillus rough in the new species. There are altogether 9 species described in the genus Incubates at present including the new species reported herein and keys to these 9 species are presented.
