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.
