S U M M A R Y
Two new species of Neotrombicula
Hirst, 1925 are described from rodents collected in Syunt-Khasardag
Reserve, Western Kopetdagh (Turkmenistan).
N. orestias sp.n. is similar to
N. nagayoi (Sasa e.a., 1950), but differs in barbed lateral
seta of palpal tibia, presence of only 6 setae in first dorsal row,
another configuration of 2—4 dorsal rows, sharply angulate posterior
margin of scutum, more thin dorsal setae and its barbs, strongly barbed
sensilla and in some measurable characters (D[mean]=33—39 vs. 40—52 in
N. nagayoi, etc.).
N. agriotricha sp.n. is
similar to N. minuta (Schluger, 1966) but differs
in barbed lateral seta of palpal tibia, another fD (2H-6-6-2-6-4-6-2
vs. 2H-6-6-6-4-4-2 in
N. minuta), significantly longer
barbs of scutal and dorsal setae, more short and numerous barbs of
sensilla and longer setae of idiosoma (D[mean]=39—44 vs. 33—35, V
[mean]=31—37 vs. 27—30 in N. minuta). Both new
species resemble one another in specific arrangement of D in 3—4th
rows, similarly barbed sensilla and D, barbed lateral seta of palpal
