Annotation:

A new hermanniellid oribatid mite species of the genus Sacculobates, S. indicus n. sp., from the Indian soil is described. The description is based upon the adult and tritonymphal instars. The adult instar of the new species differs from the both known species of the genus by the presence of epimeral neotrichy and the morphology of exuvial setae. An identification key to the known species of Sacculobates is provided.
