This survey was resulted in identifying the following two families, eight genera and 11 species. Species indicated with * are new records for the alfalfa fields mite fauna of East Azarbaijan. Histiostommatidae Krantz, 1978: Histiostoma feroniarum Du four, 1939 , Acaridae Latreille 1802; Suidasia sp.; Tyrophagus perniciosus Zachvatkin, 1991; T.similis Volgin, 1949; T. neiswanderi Johnston and Bruce, 1965; T. brevicrinatus Robertson, 1959; T. putrescentiae Schrank, 1781; Tyroborus lini Oudemans, 1924; Rhizoglyphus robini Claparede, 1869; Aleuroglyphus ovatus Troupeau, 1878; Acarus tyrophagoides Zachvatkin, 1941.
