A new species, Eutonella
kudryashovae sp. n., is described from the
North-Eastern Turkey. The new species differs from all other Eutonella
branched galeal seta. It is similar most of all with E.
differs from this species, besides branched galeal seta, by the absence
anterolateral shoulders of the scutum, slightly more numerous idiosomal
(NDV=117—121 vs. 93—105), less broad scutum (PW=77 vs. 80—91) and
shorter scutal and idiosomal setae (PL=49—51 vs. 56—65, H=54—57 vs.
Five species formerly included into the genus
Neotrombicula Hirst, 1925 are transferred to the genus
blanfordi (Kudryashova, 1977) comb. n., E. horti
comb. n., E. sciuricola (Kolebinova, 1970) comb.
n., and E. serbovae
(Kolebinova, 1972) comb. n. One
species, Neotrombicula iranensis Goff et Saboori,
1998, is synonymized with Eutonella blanfordi (Kudryashova, 1977)
comb. n. Eutonella
crinita (Schluger, 1966) is recorded in Turkey for the first
ecogeographical variability is revealed in this species: the specimens
high-mountain localities show greater values of the lengths of setae.
