Open access

Abstract

One genus (Coleolaelaps Berlese, 1914) and five species (Coleolaelaps agrestis (Berlese, 1887), C. inopinatus Grandi, 1925, H. integer Berlese, 1911, H. krameri (G. et R. Canestrini, 1881) and Gaeolaelaps rhizotrogi (Mašán, 1998)) are recorded for the first time in Ukraine. Morphological characters of female and male of Hypoaspis integer to complement the description are provided.
