Remark. In checklists of Georgian and Caucasian oribatid mites (Djaparidze 1974, Karppinen et al. 1987; Murvanidze & Darejanashvili 2000; Shtanchaeva 2001), N. anauniensis  was reported from Abkhazia and N. biciliatus C.L. Koch, 1841  was reported from the rest of the Georgia. In the world checklist of Subías (2004, updated in 2015), N. biciliatus  is considered as a junior synonym of N. anauniensis  . In the Catalogue the presence of N. anauniensis  is reported for the same locations in Georgia, where N. biciliatus  was previously registered.
