Abstract A new species of intertidal oribatid mites from Tenerife is described and its full ontogenetic development is given in detail. Thalassozetes canariensis sp. nov. can easily be distinguished from its congeners by its characteristic notogastral cuticular pattern showing loosely distributed irregular elevations, and its rectangular median sternal cavity. Based on morphology, Thalassozetes canariensis sp. nov. is most closely related to the Mediterranean T. riparius; both species share a… 
Juvenile morphology of seven intertidal mite species (Acari, Oribatida, Ameronothroidea) from the East Asian region
TLDR
The conservative morphology of immature stages could be confirmed in every studied taxon and its importance for phylogenetic considerations is emphasized.

New and cryptic species of intertidal mites (Acari, Oribatida) from the Western Caribbean – an integrative approach
TLDR
The distribution, systematics, morphology, genetics, and ecology of two newly discovered intertidal oribatid mites from the Western Caribbean are highlighted and one represents a cryptic species as it looks nearly identical to L. bonairensis.
The intertidal genus Indopacifica (Acari, Oribatida, Selenoribatidae): new species, juvenile morphology and distribution.
TLDR
Two new intertidal oribatid mite species from the Indo-pacific region are described and a morphometric comparison of these two species and Indopacifica pantai from Thailand and Malaysia showed a clear distinction between them.
Carinozetes nov. gen. (Acari: Oribatida) from Bermuda and remarks on the present status of the family Selenoribatidae
Two new species, Carinozetes trifoveatus and C. bermudensis, are reported from intertidal habitats of the archipelago of Bermuda. These species represent a new genus of the family Selenoribatidae and
Oribatid Mites from Marine Littoral and Freshwater Habitats in India with Remarks on World Species of Thalassozetes (Acari: Oribatida)
TLDR
A new species of oribatid mites found in marine coastal and semi-aquatic, freshwater habitats during a flood in India is described, and a newly revised diagnosis is proposed for this genus, Thalassozetes tenuisetosus sp.
The marine-associated lifestyle of ameronothroid mites (Acari, Oribatida) and its evolutionary origin: a review
TLDR
Two contrasting theories explaining the evolutionary invasion of marine associated habitats by ameronothroid mites are explained, one favoring a monophyletic origin and a single land-to-sea transition event and another preferring an independent terrestrial ancestry and accordingly multiple invasions of the marine littoral environment.
Listado sistemático, sinonímico y biogeográfico de los ácaros oribátidos (Acariformes, Oribatida) del mundo (1758-2002)
This is the first check-list of the world’s oribatid mites in which the approximately 9,000 currently valid, described species (and subspecies) are systematically recorded. In addition, the list
First records of intertidal mite species (Acari: Acariformes: Oribatida) from Hispaniola's coasts with two new records for the Caribbean
Three species of intertidal oribatid mites are recorded for the first time from coasts of the Dominican Republic and Hispaniola: the fortuyniid Alismobates inexpectatus and the selenoribatids
Global distribution of the thalassobiontic Fortuyniidae and Selenoribatidae (Acari, Oribatida)
TLDR
New data confirm that both families show a transoceanic occurrence on tropical and subtropical coasts and suggest that the distribution of fortuyniid and selenoribatid mites is correlated with the presence of warm ocean currents and waters.
