Abstract

We describe a new mite species from Iran - Reticulolaelaps costai n. sp. (Acari: Laelapidae). The new species was collected from the nest of Tapinoma sp. (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Alborz Province. The additional morphological characters for complementing the description of Reticulolaelaps lativentris Karg is presented. A revised diagnosis for Reticulolaelaps, as well as a key to the world species of the genus, is presented.
