The aim of this study was to report the mite species found in association with the eared dove, Zenaida auriculata (Des Murs, 1847), in São Paulo State, Brazil. A total of 34 bird specimens was examined, and mites were found on 31 of them. The following numbers of mite species were found: Astigmata: Falculiferidae- three species; Analgidae- two species; Dermoglyphidae, Epidermoptidae, Hypoderatidae and Pyroglyphidae- one species each. Prostigmata: Cheyletidae, Cheyletiellidae and Syringophilidae- one species each. Mesostigmata: Macronyssidae and Rhinonyssidae- one species each. We present the first report of Z. auriculata as host of Diplaegidia columba
