Abstract: 

During 1998, a survey was carried out to collect and identify terrestrial Parasitengona mites associated with short-horned grasshoppers (Acrididae) in Karaj and Varamin, north- central regions of Iran. Samples of grasshoppers were taken twice a month from these regions. They were examined in laboratory for mites associated with them. In this study three new species of subfamily Callidosomatinae, genus Charletonia Oudemans, 1910 were collected and identitied as follows: The species C. damavandica sp. nov.on Acrotylus insubricus Scop. And Mioscirus wagneri Kitt. From Varamin; C. nazeleae sp. nov. on Heliopteryx humeralis Kuthy and Palasiella turcomana F-W. from Karaj: and C. saboorii sp. novo on Heteracris littoralis similis (Br.-W.) from Varamin. Type specimens were deposited to insects and mites collection, College of Agriculture, Tarbiat Modarres University, Tehran, Iran.
