A new species of oribatid mite, Scheloribates daoensis sp. nov. is described from grass rhizosphere of meadow in the Tam Dao National Park, Northern Vietnam. It is morphologically most similar to S. striolatus Balogh, 1960, but differs by the body size, the morphology of bothridial setae, the length of circumpedal carinae and the distance between sacculi S1–S1. An identification key to known species/subspecies of striolatus-group of Scheloribates is provided.
