Abstract


Neotrombidium hajizadehi Noei & Saboori sp. nov. and Neotrombidium khanjanii Noei & Saboori sp. nov. (Acari: Neotrombidiidae), collected from unidentified beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) in Khorramabad, Aleshtar and Dore Chegeni cities, Lorestan Province, Iran, are described. A key to larval species of Neotrombidium of the world is provided and the generic diagnosis is amended.
