Aggregation of Archegozetes longisetosus, copyright Dr Michael Heethoff.


Belongs within: Holonota.
Contains: Crotonia, Hermanniidae, Astigmata, Malaconothrus, Trimalaconothrus, Nothrus, Nanhermanniidae, Camisia, Platynothrus, Circumdehiscentiae, Allonothrus, Heminothrus, Trhypochthonius.

The Desmonomata have been recognised as a group of oribatid mites with a holoid body form, in which epimera II and III are fused and the sejugal furrow is absent ventrally, in combination with an undivided notogaster and legs in which the genua are not reduced to a knee-like segment. With the exception of the Hermanniidae, most Desmonomata in this sense also have a macropyline venter, in which the large genital and anal plates occupy almost the entire venter posterior to the epimeres. However, phylogenetic analyses have established that the Desmonomata sensu stricto is paraphyletic with regard to the Circumdehiscentiae (or Brachypylina; 'higher' oribatid mites) and the Astigmata (previously recognised as a separate group from the Oribatida), both of which share the holoid body form. Many Desmonomata, including the families Malaconothridae, Camisiidae, Trhypochthoniidae and the genus Nothrus, are parthenogenetic, though the Crotoniidae and the other genera of Nothridae are sexual (Norton & Behan-Pelletier 2009).
