The superfamily Tetranychoidea families Tetranychidae, Tenuipalpidae, Tuckerellidae, Allochaetophoridae and Linotetranidae. The families Tetranychidae and Tenuipalpidae are the most economically important in agriculture. Feeding these mites directly from agricultural products causes economic damage and in some cases causes the transmission of plant pathogens. Samples were collected between 2019-2020, and slides were prepared in the acarology laboratory of Bu-Ali Sina University of Hamedan. Mites were examined under Olympus BX51 phase-contrast compound microscope. In this study, 9 genera and 13 species from 3 families of Tetranychidae, Tenuipalpidae and Linotetranidae were collected as follows:
Tetranychidae: Tetranychus urticae Koch, 1836, Eotetranychus sp. Khanjani, 2012, Petrobia latens Muller, 1776, P. hordei Khanjani, Khanjani & Seeman, 2016, Bryobia praetiosa Koch, 1836; Tenuipalpidae: Tenuipalpus zahirii Khanjani et al., 2013, Aegyptobia bromi Khanjani, 2012, A. pirii Khanjani, 2012, Pseudoleptus hamedaniensis Khanjani, 2012, P. iraniensis Khanjani, 2012, Phytoptipalpus salicicola Al-Gboory, 1987; Linotetranidae: Linotetranus astragalusi Khanjani et al., 2011, L. iraniensis Khanjani et al., 2011.
