Neomyobia africanoides spec. nov. figs. 1-3 This new mite, discovered on the Peak-saddle Horseshoe Bat (Rhinolophus blasii Peters), is very similar to Neomyobia africana Lawrence (1951), but differs from it in the female by lacking the pair of pores on the hind part of the venter, by slight differences in the length of several dorsal spines and setae, and in the male mainly by the shape of the penis.
