Neoseiulus paspalivorus is a new record for Iranian mite fauna. It is re-described and illustrated. Some setal lengths of Proprioseiopsis messor collected in Iran show deviations from those of the holotype and re-descriptions from the other countries. This species is re-described and illustrated based on the material collected in Iran.
