Camisia cf. nova, photographed by S. E. Thorpe.

Belongs within: Camisiidae.

Camisia is a cosmopolitan genus of primarily arboreal oribatid mites, with some species found among mosses on rocks. Specimens of the genus are known from Baltic amber. Camisia is divided between two subgenera distinguished by whether the legs are tridactylous (Camisia) or monodactylous (Ensicamisia).

Characters (from Balogh & Balogh 1992): Bothridial sensillus present. Notogaster with more or less parallel margins, posteriorly widely truncate. Epimeral setal formula 3-1-3-3 or 3-1-2-3. Genital and anal plates of macropyline type, large, occupying entire ventral side posterior to epimeres; nine pairs of genital setae; two pairs of aggenital setae; three pairs of anal setae; three pairs of adanal setae. Legs with one or three tarsal claws.
