Annotation:

The present study is based on oribatid mite material collected from leaf litter in the forest near Shari-la Island Resort, Coral Bay, Malaysia, in 2016. A list of identified taxa, including 15 species from 14 genera and 10 families, is presented; of these, one species is new for science: Lohmannia (Lohmannia) triangulata Ermilov sp. n. differs from L. (Lohmannia) hungarorum Mahunka, 1980 by the morphology of some prodorsal, notogastral and genital setae, and length of anterior exobothridial setae.
