Annotation:

A new species of the genus Peloribates (Oribatida, Haplozetidae) is described from Louisiana, USA. Peloribates roynortoni Ermilov, Shtanchaeva et Subías sp.n. is tentatively included in the subgenus Peloribates (Peloribatodes). The new species differs from Peloribates (Peloribatodes) incompatibilis Mahunka, 2011 by the presence of prolamellae, macrofoveolate prodorsum, notogaster and anogenital region as well as striate epimeres.
