Annotation:

This study is based on the oribatid mite material collected in Ethiopia in 2020. A list of identified taxa, including 38 species from 29 genera and 20 families, is provided. Of these, six species are recorded for the first time in the Afrotropical region, and five species are recorded for the first time in Ethiopia. Supplementary descriptions and illustrations, as well as taxonomic data on two species of the family Galumnidae (Galumna lanceosensilla Ermilov, Sidorchuk and Rybalov, 2011 and Taeniogalumna behanae Ermilov, Sidorchuk and Rybalov, 2010) are presented.
