Acknowledgments:

We thank the employees of the Institute of Water and Ecological Problems, Far Eastern Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences, Khabarovsk, Russia for their sampling assistance; and Alexey A. Gubin (Tyumen State University, Tyumen, Russia) for the SEM micrographs. The study was funded by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) (project № 18-04-00097) and by the RFBR and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Sports (MECSS) (project № 20-54-44014).

Annotation:

The present study is based on a random set of previously unstudied oribatid mites of the family Damaeidae, which were collected from the Russian Far East in 1987–2019. Based on the above material, we have identified 22 species and 12 genera from 28 localities. Of these, the genus Weigmannia and the species Epidamaeus craigheadi and Weigmannia parki have been recorded from the Palaearctic region for the first time. In addition, the genera Acanthobelba and Dyobelba, as well as the species Acanthobelba heterosetosa, Dyobelba biclavata, Damaeus maximus, D. striatus, and Epidamaeus variabilis, have been recorded from Russia (Far East) for the first time. The species Epidamaeus puritanicus has the highest occurrence across different biotopes.
