Two new species of predatory mites in the family Cheyletidae, Mexecheles thailandensis n.
Two new species of the oribatid mite subgenus Phyllolohmannia (Oribatida: Lohmanniidae: Mixacarus) from Thailand

The enarthronote oribatid mite genus Phyllochthonius Trave, 1967 (Acari: Oribatida: Phyll Cochthoniidae) is recorded from Thailand for the first time and a key to the three currently known species is provided.
Psammochthoniidae n. fam., a paedomorphic family of oribatid mites (Oribatida: Enarthronota) from sandy soil in Thailand, Brazil and the U.S.A.
Traits that are unique among hypochthonioid mites include an adult body length under 250 microm, a functionally trichoid body form (postpedal flexing), strong lateral displacement of setae in row e, which insert on a unique form of transverse scissure, subcapitular stenarthry, leg IV vestiges and a possible precocious genital swelling in the larva are suggested.
Adamystis Cunliffe, 1957 (Acari: Prostigmata: Adamystidae) in Iran: two new species and a key to the Iranian species
Two new species of the prostigmatic mite genus Adamystis theroni and ueckermanni from Fars province, Iran are described and illustrated based on female specimens collected from soil, humus and leaf litter under oak trees.
Neocaeculus orientalis sp. nov. (Acari, Trombidiformes, Caeculidae) from Thailand.
A new species of the predatory mite family Caeculidae, N. orientalis sp. nov., is described and illustrated, based on adult and all active immature instars from moss and forest litter of various…
Nanohystricidae n. fam., an unusual, plesiomorphic enarthronote mite family endemic to New Zealand (Acari, Oribatida).
The large character gaps between N. hammerae and other enarthronote taxa justifies proposal of a monotypic new family--Nanohystricidae n. fam.--which is tentatively grouped with several other relictual families in the paraphyletic Heterochthonioidea.
A second species in the millipede suborder Sinocallipodidea Shear, 2000 (Diplopoda: Callipodida)
Although there are just a few differences in the structure of the gonopods, the new species can be easily distinguished from its congener by the larger number of ocelli and pleurotergites, the relative length of antennae, shape of antennomere 7, body coloration, etc.
