Annotation:

A new species of the genus Coronipes Mahunka, 1972 (Acari: Pygmephoroidea: Scutacaridae), C. sperati sp. n. is described from termites Reticulitermes speratus kyushuensis Morimoto, 1968 (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) from South Korea. The genus Coronipes is redefined. A key to Coronipes species is provided. An association of pygmephoroid mites with termites is discussed.
