Abstract
The ectoparasitic mite Podapolipus khorasanicus Hajiqanbar n. sp. (Acari: Heterostigmatina: Podapolipidae), detached from abdominal tergites of Opatroides punctubtus Brulle, 1832 (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) in northeastern Iran, is described and compared with related species. A key to world species of the coleopteran parasites of the genus Podapolipus Rovelli & Grassi (1888) is provided, and their distribution and host range are discussed.
