Abstract: Three species of mites in the subgenus Antennoseius (Antennoseius) Berlese, 1916 associated with ground beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae) are reported for the first time from Iran: A. (A.) longisetus Eidelberg, A. (A.) sabulicola Bregetova and A. (A.) sharonovi Eidelberg. These species and A. (A.) masoviae Sellnick, are diagnosed in detail. Idiosomal poroidotaxy and adenotaxy for the subgenus are illustrated. A. (A.) vysotskajae Sklyar is considered as junior synonym of A. (A.) sharonovi. A key to Iranian species of the genus is presented.
