A total of 12 mite species of the family Ameroseiidae have been reported from Egypt. The objectives of this paper are to report an additional species, Kleemannia pavida (Koch), from that country and to present complementary descriptions of seven of those species, namely Ameroseius aegypticus El-Badry, Nasr & Hafez, Kleemannia kosi El-Badry, Nasr & Hafez, K. nova Nasr & Abou-Awad, K. wahabi Ibrahim & Abdel-Samed, K. pavida, K. plumosa (Oudemans) and Sertitympanum zaheri (El-Badry, Nasr & Hafez), based on the examination of specimens from Egypt. Within this context, the males of K. nova, K. wahabi and S. zaheri are described for the first time. A key to all the ameroseiid species recorded from Egypt is provided.
