Three flat mite species-Brevipalpus cuneatus (Canestrini & Fanzago, 1876), Aegyptobia tragardhi Sayed, 1950, and Aegyptobia beglarovi Livschitz & Mitrofanov, 1967-were registered for the first time for the Georgian fauna, of which B. cuneatus and A. tragardhi are new records in the Caucasus. Consequently, in adding these new records, the total number of tenuipalpid mites in Georgia is increased to 31 species.
