During investigations on mites associated with fruit and pine trees bark beetles in Alborz and Tehran provinces, six species of oribatid mites, belonging to five families, were found and identified during two periods of time, 2001–2002 and 2006–2010. The species and their families are as follows: Paraleius leontonychus (Hemileiidae), Oribatula ( Zygoribatula ) skrjabini and Oribatula sp. (Oribatulidae), Scheloribates sp. nr. Fusifer (Scheloribatidae), Tectocepheus velatus (Tectocepheidae), and… 
A new Paraleius species (Acari, Oribatida, Scheloribatidae) associated with bark beetles (Curculionidae, Scolytinae) in Canada
Abstract Bark beetles (Scolytinae) are hosts to a broad diversity of mites (Acari), including several genera of Oribatida (Sarcoptiformes). Of these, Paraleius (Scheloribatidae) species are the most
REVIEW OF MITES (ACARI) ASSOCIATED WITH THE EUROPEAN SPRUCE BARK BEETLE, IPS TYPOGRAPHUS (COLEOPTERA: CURCULIONIDAE: SCOLYTINAE) IN ASIAN RUSSIA
TLDR
A total of 68 mite species were collected on Ips typographus and in their galleries in Siberia and in the Far East of Russia, and the following taxa are recorded for the first time.
Unexpected diversity in the host-generalist oribatid mite Paraleius leontonychus (Oribatida, Scheloribatidae) phoretic on Palearctic bark beetles
TLDR
Six well supported, fairly divergent clades within P. leontonychus are identified and mito-nuclear discordance indicates a case of past hybridization/introgression among distinct Paraleius species, the first case of interspecific hybridization reported in mites other than ticks.
MITES (ACARI) PHORETIC ON SIX-TOOTHED SPRUCE BARK BEETLE, PITYOGENES CHALCOGRAPHUS LINNAEUS (COLEOPTERA: CURCULIONIDAE: SCOLYTINAE), IN WESTERN SIBERIA, RUSSIA
TLDR
The hyperphoresy by deutonymphs of Histiostoma picea and Trichouropoda polytricha on other phoretic mites on bark beetles are recorded.
Two new species of insect phoretic Siculobata (Paraleius) (Acari, Oribatida, Scheloribatidae) from U.S.A. and Trinidad
Two new species of oribatid mites of the subgenus Siculobata (Paraleius), phoretic on Insecta (Coleoptera and Diptera), are described from the U.S.A. and Trinidad, based on adults. Siculobata
Juvenile instars of Siculobata (Paraleius) leontonycha (Acari, Oribatida, Scheloribatidae)
Abstract The morphology of juvenile instars of the oribatid mite, Siculobata (Paraleius) leontonycha (Berlese, 1910) is described and illustrated, based on material collected from the galleries of
New Perscheloribates species (Acari, Oribatida, Scheloribatidae) phoretic on beetles (Insecta, Coleoptera)
TLDR
Two new species of oribatid mites of the genus Perscheloribates, phoretic on passalid and zopherid beetles (Coleoptera), are described from the Philippines and U.S.A., based on adults.

Diversity and Host use of Mites (Acari: Mesostigmata, Oribatida) Phoretic on Bark Beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytinae): Global Generalists, Local Specialists?
TLDR
Half (7) of the 14 most common mites collected in this study showed a marked preference for a single host species, which contradicts the hypothesis that nonparasitic mites are typically not host specific, at least locally.
Phoretic mites of three bark beetles (Pityokteines spp.) on Silver fir
TLDR
None of the phoretic mites found in the survey in Croatia appear to have the potential to be used for biological control of Pityokteines spp.

TLDR
The species composition and abundance of phoretic mites of the bark beetle Pityokteines curvidens caught in pheromone traps were investigated in Croatia, increasing the number of mite species known to bephoretic on P.Curvidens spp.
Mites associated with Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmerman (Scolytidae: Coleoptera) in Central America and Mexico
TLDR
Fifty-seven species were found in thiserial and are here presented in an annotated list and can at best be regarded as partial, and it is hoped it will serve as a reference point for other acarologlsts.

TLDR
The aim of this study was to record and quantify conidia and ascospores of O. novo-ulmi on phoretic mites on the three elm bark beetle species Scolytus multistriatus, Scoly tus pygmaeus, and ScolyTus scolytus, and to contribute to the transmission of the pathogen.

TLDR
Flying Ips typographus japonicus from Hokkaido (Japan) carried 12 species of phoretic mites, three of which were not previously recorded in Europe, including specialists feeding on microorganisms, beetle eggs, and nematodes which were common under beetle elytra.
