Introduction

The Hòn Chông-Kien Luong Hills are amongst the richest and most threatened karst systems in the world (Deharveng et al. 2009), principally due to extensive quarrying activities. These sparsely scattered minute limestone outcrops occur on the Ha

Tien Plain in the extreme southwest of Vietnam near the border with Cambodia. Since several of these endemic-rich hills have already been destroyed or are under quarrying, there is a need to evaluate their fauna in order to enhance support of an action plan currently implemented by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) and a cement company. Arthropod fauna of the remaining karst hills have been extensively sampled by several teams of Vietnamese and

French researchers, and a large network of international experts is working on the collected materials. Sergey

Ermilov in particular published numerous species descriptions and catalogues of oribatid mites from different sites in

Vietnam, including this region. Studying the biodiversity of the Hòn Chông limestone hills is a crucial element of understanding and assessing the impacts on these small and fragile ecosystems (Deharveng et al. 2009).

The study of oribatid mites found in deep soil samples from the area commenced with a paper (Fernandez et al. 2014) describing a new genus Bedoslohmannia and two new species, Bedoslohmannia anneae and Paulianacarus vietnamese, which show notable particularities and adaptations compared to other genera in the Lohmanniidae family.
