Abstract

Three new Aculops species (Eriophyidae: Phyllocoptinae) including Aculops menthafoliae n. sp., Aculopsconsoregalis n. sp. and Aculops coluteae n. sp. were identified from Mentha longifolia (L.) L. (Lamiaceae), Consolida regalis Gray (Ranunculaceae) and Colutea cilicica Boiss. & Balansa (Leguminosae), respectively, in Southwest of East Azerbaijan province of Iran. It is the first record of genus Aculops from Ranunculaceae and the first record of eriophyoid mites from Consolida regalis Gray. A key to the Aculops species collected in Iran is provided.
