Abstract: 

Oribatid mites are one of the richest acarine groups that occur in soil, litter, moss, lichen, and rarely aquatic environments. They are actively involved in decomposition of organic matters, in nutrient cycling and in soil formation (Pande & Berthet 1973; Bayoumi & Al-Khalifa 1996). Currently, almost 10, 000 oribatid species, representing 172 families, have been described (Schatz 2002, 2004; Sub?as 2004; Norton & Behan-Pelletier 2009), while estimates of the real world oribatid fauna range from 50, 000?100, 000 species (Schatz & Behan-Pelletier 2008).
