The chigger mite genus Tateracarus Goff, 1983 was known from one species, Tateracarus quadrisetosus
Goff, 1983, described ex Gerbilliscus leucogaster (Peters) in Namibia. We describe two more species of this
genus, Tateracarus kimberleyensis sp. n. and Tateracarus foliosetosus sp. n. collected from Micaelamys
namaquensis (Smith) in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. We also update the diagnosis of Tateracarus.
