A new species, Demodex vibrissae sp. nov. (Acari: Demodecidae), is described based on the morphology of adults and nymphs from the skin of the house mouse Mus musculus Linnaeus, 1758 in Poland. It is a demodecid mite of medium size (adult stages on average 179 µm in length), and its body is slender and strongly elongated. Individuals were found in the skin of the vibrissal area. D. vibrissae sp. nov. was noted in 10.3% of mice, with mean intensity of 8.3 parasites per host.
