Catalogue of Oribatid Mites (Acari: Oribatida) of India

Asok Kanti Sanyal (Author) Occasional Paper

From Introduction: The first description and record of oribatid mites from India was known through the work of Pearce (1906) from the Sikkim Himalaya. He described and reported 20 species distributed over 12 genera out of which 12 were already known from Great Britain. Later Ewing (1910) described two species of oribatid mites from Nilgiri Hills in Tamil Nadu. Till then, nearly 50 Indian and few foreign scientists have been working on this group of mite. The need for preparation of a catalogue of Indian oribatid mites is a pre requisite from any further studies on these mites. The present catalogue is the revised checklist of Indian oribatid mites listing 178 species, 118 genera and 56 families, authored by Sanyal and Bhaduri (1986). Up till now (March, 2018) a total of 789 species/subspecies (including 179 undetermined species) under 265 genera/subgenera and 95 families are known from India. 10, 826 species under 1269 genera and 164 families are known from the world (Subias, 2016).
