The family Phytoseiidae is considered the most important beneficial mite family worldwide, but little is known about this family in Shanxi of China. To understand the phytoseiid fauna of this province, an extensive study was initiated in 2013. We present herein the description of a new species, Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) shanxi sp. nov., and the redescription of three new provincial records, Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) coryli Wu and Lan, 1991, Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) porus Wu, 1988, Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) ternatus Ehara, 1972, found on various plants in Shanxi. A key to the known species of Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) reported form Shanxi is also presented.
