AbstractFive species of mites belonging to three genera of the family Spinturnioidae are reported from six species of bats in Nigeria. The species are Meristaspis kenyaensis (Radford), Ancystropus aethiopicus Hirst, Spinturnix walkerae Zumpt & Till, S. scotophili repens ssp.n., and S. intectus sp.n. Male and female specimens of the two new taxa are fully described and figured. Zoogeographical and taxonomical implications of the results of this study are discussed.
