Abstract

Weigmann (2006) published a comprehensive study of oribatid mites in the series ‘Fauna of Germany’. Since then the number of known species from Germany has greatly increased. The recent publication lists a total of 570 oribatid mite taxa (560 species and 10 subspecific taxa) currently known and provides maps of their distribution in Germany.
