A new species of chigger mite, Lacertacarus sardiniensis sp. nov., is described from a lizard Podarcis tiliguerta (Gmelin)
collected in Sardinia. One species, Ericotrombidium caucasicum (Schluger, 1967), previously known from Southern Russia
and Southern Ukraine, is recorded for the first time on the lizards Podarcis filfolensis (Bedriaga) and Podarcis siculus
(Rafinesque-Schmaltz), and on Malta, Lipari Island and Alicudi Island (Aeolian Islands, Sicily, Italy).
