Abstract

This paper reports on three species of mites of the family Laelapidae in Iran—Gymnolaelaps longiosetae sp. nov. collected from ants, Myrmica sp., and Laelaspis persicus Joharchi & Halliday, 2012 and Laelaspis dariusi Joharchi & Jalaeian, 2012, for which the males are herein described for the first time, whereas the females were previously described, also from Iran.
