Mites are some of the most common guests of social insects, whether this relation is parasitic or not. There are a handful of larval species in Parasitengona worldwide that stablished a parasitic association with ants. The only two species in the genus Forania (Acari, Erythraeidae), F. mentonensis from France and F. sendrai from south Spain, are two of them. There are three captures reported for these two species in 92 years, all of them associated with ants. In this study, mite specimens captured from two locations in the surroundings of Barcelona and belonging to Forania are studied. This is the first report of F. mentonensis since 1930, and it is a new record for the Spanish fauna. Furthermore, a comprehensive search in the on-line citizen science resource Biodiversidad Virtual revealed at least twelve possible new citations of Forania sp. across the East Mediterranean side of Spain. These new data suggest a wider distribution and specific temporal location of these species than previously thought.
