To study the fauna of oribatid mites (Oribatida) in Sistan & Baluchestan province (southeastern Iran), soil and leaf litter samples were collected in Saravan and Gulshan counties from March to September 2021. In total, 40 species belonging to 30 genera from 18 families were collected and identified, among them genera Hoplophorella, Javacarus, subgenera Leptogalumna, Paralamellobates, and seven species, Acrotritia rustica Niedbała, 1991, Hoplophorella vitrina (Berlese, 1913), Javacarus foliatus Hammer, 1972, Lamellobates misella (Berlese, 1910), Rostrozetes ovulum ovulum (Berlese, 1908), Striatoppia cf. quadrilineata Hammer, 1982, and Scheloribates praelineatus Hammer, 1977 are newly recorded for the fauna of Iran.
