Protoribates (Protoribates)

Protoribates lophothrichus, copyright R. Penttinen.


Belongs within: Haplozetidae.

The type subgenus of the genus Protoribates is a cosmopolitan group of oribatid mites (Subías 2004), albeit one of uncertain composition owing to confusion over the identity of the type species (Colloff & Halliday 1998).

Characters (from Balogh & Balogh 1992a, as Protoribates and Xylobates): Prodorsum with lamellae present, translamella absent; interlamellar setae long. Dorsosejugal suture present. Notogaster smooth; ten pairs of notogastral setae short but present; four pairs of areae porosae; areae porosae Aa, A2 and A3 round; pteromorphs well developed, movable. Four to six pairs of genital setae; one pair of aggenital setae; two pairs of anal setae; three pairs of adanal setae. Legs monodactyle.
