Abstract :
Oribatid mites are a group of arthropods that have had remarkable evolutionary success with regard to species richness and variety of habitats colonized. They have successfully invaded all compartments of the biosphere; and one can find several hundred thousand oribatid mites per square meter in the organic layers of temperate forest soil, represented by more than 100 species (Lebrun & van Straalen 1995). According to the present literature, major faunistic studies of oribatid mites in Iran are limited to Mazandaran and Guilan Provinces (Northern Iran) (Akrami & Saboori 2012; Akrami & Doryanizadeh 2013; Mortazavi et al. 2010, 2011); East Azerbaijan and West
