Epidamaeus hexatuberculatus sp. n. (Oribatida: Damaeidae) is described from Russia. The new species is similar to E. nortoni Bayartogtokh, 2004 and E. tritylos Behan-Pelletier et Norton, 1983 but differs from both by the absence of enantiophyses E2 and V, the presence of mediosejugal enantiophysis, narrowly phylliform interlamellar seta and tubercle-like, rounded distally discidium, and the localization of prodorsobasal tubercle Da.
