Abstract
Near to the Paraguayan town Concepción water mites were sampled in one shallow lake and four ponds, so-called Tajamares. These waters are characterized briefly in their abiotic aspects. The six net catches had as a result 29 species out of 13 genera and 5 families. Six species are new to science. Just a single species is found in 7 out of 13 genera. The genus Koenikea is the one with the largest species number, namely 7. Only a few species show greater abundances. Many species have markedly inferior abundances: of 10 species only a single individual could be caught. Not a single species occurred in all five waters.
