Autogneta sp., photographed by Jennifer M. Patterson.

Belongs within: Circumdehiscentiae.

The Autognetidae are a family of oribatid mites characterised by the presence of subparallel costulae on the prodorsum, and small humeral tubercles (Balogh & Balogh 1992). All genera except Austrogneta and Eremobodes have a median incision on the rostrum, and Balogh & Balogh (1992) suggested the latter two genera may be misplaced in this family. The northern Asian genus Parautogneta bears cristae on the anterior part of the notogaster (Balogh & Balogh 1992).

Characters (from Balogh & Balogh 1992): Prodorsum with long costulae, longer than half length of prodorsum, costulae at their basis converging, then more or less parallel extending to the rostral region. Rostrum usually with a median incision. Anterior part of notogaster without hollows; crista represented by small, obtuse humeral tubercle. Setae ad1 in postanal position. Legs monodactyle.
