A new species of sand-mite, Schoengastiella (Dureniella) irani, sp. n., collected from Rattus sp. in Iran, is described. This is the first Palearctic species known to belong to subgenus Dureniella and, as such, is apparently conspecific with material collected in the Kyrgyz Republic and incorrectly identified by Kudryashova as Schoengastiella (Dureniella) wansoni Wolfs et Vercammen-Grandjean, an Afrotropical species.
