During a survey on stigmaeid mites in northwestern Iran (2004-2006), several specimens of the family Stigmaeidae were collected on olive trees in Moghan (Ardebil province) in July 2006. These mites were later identified as Agistemus collyerae Gonzalez-Rodriguez. This is the first record of this species from Iran. The specimens were collected along with the specimens of the family Eriophyidae on olive leaves demonstrating a type of correlation between stigmaeid and eriophyid mites. Further studies on the ecological roles of these mites will provide better understanding of their coexisting behavior.
