Abstract
A new species Crocidurobia faini n. sp. (Acariformes: Myobiidae) recorded on Crocidura denti Dollman (type-host) (Soricomorpha: Soricidae), Crocidura cf. niobe Thomas, Crocidura cf. littoralis Heller, and Crocidura sp. from DR Congo is described. This new species differs in both sexes from all other species of the subgenus Crocidurobia Jameson, 1970 by short setae c2, more than three times shorter than setae se. Females of the new species differ from those of the close species Crocidurobia toroensis Dusbabek, 1983 by setal bases e2 situated slightly anterior to the level of setal bases e1; males of the new species differ by the genital shield bearing five pairs of setae situated anterior to the level of setal bases d1.
