From these species, Hermannia (Hermannia) gibba, Carabodes (Flexa) intermedius, Poroliodes farinosus, Gymnodamaeus bicostatus, Suctobelbella (Suctobelbella) subtrigona, Oribatula (Oribatula) interrupta, Rhinoppia hygrophila and Liebstadia (Liebstadia) humerata are new for the Turkish Fauna. In addition, Liacarus (Liacarus) coracinus, Scheloribates (Scheloribates) pallidulus, Eupelops torulosus, Oribatula (Zygoribatula) exilis and Tectocepheus velatus were reported in this field for the first time. Electron microscope photographs of the identified mites were taken. In the study, their distinguishing properties were presented and their distribution all over the world was given.
