Oribatula (Oribatula)

Oribatula tibialis, copyright R. Penttinen.

Belongs within: Oribatulidae.

The type subgenus of the genus Oribatula is a cosmopolitan group of oribatid mites, generally distinguished from members of the subgenus Zygoribatula by the absence of a translamella on the prodorsum (Lee 1992).

Characters (from Lee 1992): Twelve to fourteen pairs of short, smooth or weakly ciliate hysteronotal setae. Humeral setae (Z1, S1) similar in size and shape to other hysteronotal setae (rarely Z1 stouter, but still subequal in length). Proteronotum without translamella, lamella at least lamellate anteriorly (never just costate or lineate), in subparallel pair, medium size or long, distance between lamellar seta z1 and dorsosejugal furrow greater than 1.5× distance between interlamellar seta j2 and bothridium of sensory seta z2. Genital shield with four pairs of setae.
