Knowledge about the fauna of scutacarid mites (Heterostigmatina, Pygmephoroidea, Scutacaridae) on the Iberian Peninsula is very scarce. In order to increase information on Iberian scutacarids, collections were performed in the south of Andalusia, resulting in one new species Scutacarus tarifae sp. nov. and four new records for the Iberian Peninsula: Diversipes exhamulatus (Michael, 1886), Scutacarus carinthiacus Ebermann, 1979, S. echidna (Berlese, 1905) and S. eucomus (Berlese, 1908). The first descriptions of male and larva of S. eucomus are provided, and the unusual shape of the pharyngeal pumps of S. carinthiacus is discussed.
