Three new species of chigger mites are described from two species of iguana endemic to the Galápagos Islands. Odontacarus
cruzi sp. nov. and Schoengastia galapa sp. nov. are found on the marine iguana, Amblyrhynchus cristatus Bell,
and Eutrombicula pachytrichia sp. nov. is found on the Santa Fe land iguana, Conolophus pallidus Heller.
All these mite species were collected, identified, and named by P.H. Vercammen-Grandjean, but remained undescribed until the present.
