A new species of oribatid mites of the genus Lasiobelba (Oribatida, Oppiidae), collected from the soil sample in the forest of Yangmingshan National Park (Taiwan), is described. L. tsaoshanensis Ermilov sp.n. differs from L. sculpta Wang, 1993, L. yunnanensis Wen, 1999 and L. longisensilla Ermilov, 2017 by the absence of notogastral setae h3 and by the presence of notogastral setae lm, lp distinctly longer than la and h3.
