Abstract: The morphology of juvenile and adult stages of two oribatid mites, Scutovertex rugosus MihelÓiÓ, 1957 and S. perforatus Sitnikova, 1975 (Oribatida: Scutoverticidae) is described and illustrated. The comparative analysis of morphological features during ontogeny is presented. Moreover, the development duration in various laboratory conditions was studied. The development of S. rugosus lasted from 72 to 135 days, that of S. perforatus from 66 to 85 days.
