Open access

Abstract

During a two-year study on mites of the order Mesostigmata in broadleaved forest stands dominated by small-leaved lime (Tilia cordata Mill.), 117 mite species were identified. Among them, 3 had been so far rarely recorded in Poland (Haemogamasus nidi, Stylochirus rovenensis and Eugamasus crassitarsis) and 2 were classified as new to the Polish fauna (Veigaia sibirica and Digamasellus perpusillus).
