Material – Two specimens in Aluç Dağı Natural Park , Ankara, N 40° 49′ 75.37′′, E 32° 58′ 26.46′′, alt. = 1402 m, 15 July 2018, soil   .

Previous record in Turkey – Kayseri ( Per and Ercan 2015)

Ecology – Forest moss, litter and soils.

Remarks – In the world catalogue of Subías (2020 update) this species is listed as Campachipteria (Triachipteria) fanzagoi ( Jacot, 1929)   . In the ckecklist of Georgian oribatid mites (Murvanidze and Mumladze 2016), we explained the reasons of disagreements with this placement with the main reason of Campachipteria species   having monodactylous legs ( Aoki 1995) and P. fanzagoi   being the tridactylous species. The name of the species is provided after Weigmann (2006).
