The fauna of Typhlodrominae in Pakistan (Acari: Phytoseiidae) includes five genera and 54 nominal species, reported from different agroecosystems and climatic zones of the country. The most diverse genera are Typhlodromus Scheuten (37 species) and Kuzinellus Wainstein (13 species). Two species of Chanteius Wainstein, and one species each of the genera Cydnoseius Muma and Neoseiulella Muma have been reported. Two species previously placed in Typhlodromus are here transferred to Chanteius, due to the absence of seta s6 and presence of Z1. Two species, T. (Anthoseius) hadii Chaudhri and T. (Anthoseius) maracus (Chaudhri), are re-described with improved descriptions and illustrations. Four species previously placed in Typhlodromus are considered as synonyms of Cydnoseius negevi (Swirski & Amitai 1961). Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) divergentis (Chaudhri, Akbar & Rasool) is considered as a synonym of T. (Anthoseius) egypticus El-Badry, and T. husaini Khan is considered as species inquirenda. A provisional key to the species of Typhlodrominae in Pakistan is provided.
