ORIBOTRITIIDAE  Grandjean, 1954

The family Oribotritiidae  is different from the Euphthiracaridae  (from which it was separated by Grandjean in 1954) by the characteristic structure of the ano-genital region, and by the structure of the palp that has 5 joints.

Beside Oribotritia  Jacot (1924) (which was mentioned by Grandjean (1954) as Single representative of the family) two other genera possibly belong to the family: Indotritia  Jacot (1929) and Protoribotritia  Jacot (1938a).

I have contributed Berlese's species to Oribotritia  .
