The authors give a report on the results of the regular mite collectings made between 1990 and 2003 on ornamental trees and shrubs, on streets, in parks, in green spaces of housing estates, in botanical gardens and private gardens, in various localities of Hungary. This survey also covers material collected in soft fruit orchards and vineyard, on a winter barley and winter wheat field by Malaise-trap, a nature conservation area (xerothermic grassland) by D-Vac (vacuum insect sampler) and in stored plants. Representatives of 31 families were identified. Out of 113 mite species 52 species (e.g. Neoseiulus setulus (Fox, 1947), Typhlodromus cryptus Athias-Henriot, 1960, Typhlodromus georgicus Wainstein, 1958, Typhlodromus kazachstanicus Wainstein, 1958, Lorryia atyeoi Baker, 1968, Tydeus praeditus Livshitz et Zapletina, 1972, Neophyllobius bialagorensis Bolland, 1991, Rhyncaphytoptus platani Keifer, 1939, Tarsonemus piliger von Schlechtendal, 1898) are new for the Hungarian fauna.
