The aim of this study was to determine mite fauna of bulbaceous ornamental plants in Turkey. The samples were collected during 2000-2002 mainly in Ankara Turkey. Mesostigmata samples are evaluated in this paper. Host plants, frequency and occurrence rates are included. In total 30 mesostigmatid species belonging to 17 genera and 11 family were identified during the survey. Lasioseius berlesei, Dendrolaelaps zwoelferi, Macrocheles robustulus, Pachylaelaps vexillifer, Veigaia planicola, Hypoaspis angusta, H. brevipilis and H. subterranea are new records to Turkey. Hypoaspis aculeifer is more abundant species on bulbs. Canna indica and Dahlia hybrida were the most prefered and populated bulbaceous host plants by mesostigmatid mites.
