During series of surveys on mesostigmatic mites of Russia in 2020, mites were collected from different regions and habitats including in association with insects. Host insects were collected individual handpicking and placed in vials with 96% ethanol and their associated mites were removed by the fine brush. Mites were extracted from the soil, ants’ nests and plant hosts using Berlese–Tullgren funnels, and then all mites were cleared in lactic acid solution and finally mounted in Hoyer’s medium on microslides. As a result, 28 species belong to 13 genera, and six families were recorded for the first time from Russia. The name of the host is written in square brackets after the stage of the mite that is found associated with its host:
