Abstract In this study, the findings of three water mite species of the family Hygrobatidae collected from different streams in Turkey were evaluated. Hygrobates (s. str.) anatolicus Esen & Pešić, sp. n. is described as new for science. Hygrobates (Rivobates) diversiporus Sokolow, 1927 and Atractides (s. str.) nikooae Pešić, 2004, which were illustrated and thoroughly discussed, are new records for the Turkish fauna.

A new water mite species, Hygrobates zawali n. sp., is described from material collected in the ancient Lake Ohrid on the Balkan Peninsula. This species has been confused for a long time with the
Redescription of Hygrobates quanaticola (Acari: Hygrobatidae) based on new materials from Iran
Hygrobates quanaticola is redescribed from new materials collected in Iran. Additionally, the description of the deutonymph is provided . This is the first report of this species from lotic waters.
Six species in one: evidence of cryptic speciation in the Hygrobates fluviatilis complex (Acariformes, Hydrachnidia, Hygrobatidae)
It is shown that water mites of the genus Hygrobates belong to six distinct lineages, two of them widely distributed in Central Europe and a species new to science, H. arenarius Smit & Pešić, which should be considered true cryptic species.

Molecular evidence for species separation in the water mite Hygrobates nigromaculatus Lebert, 1879 (Acari, Hydrachnidia): evolutionary consequences of the loss of larval parasitism
It is hypothesized that the ancestral lake-dwelling population originated from a stream form with parasitic larvae, and relatively more differentiated genetic structure in lake populations probably results from a stronger isolation between particular lake habitats, but this hypothesis needs further extensive studies.
