A faunistic survey was carried out in order to monitor the occurrence of phytoseiid species in 82 vineyards located in 6 distinctive wine regions between 2004 and 2009. We have registered the habitat of the species present, and also identified the most widespread and abundant species which are the most important in limiting phytophagous mites. Twenty phytoseiid species as well as 7 species belonging to other families of the order Mesostigmata have been identified, out of which T. pyri has been the most dominant in all wine regions tested. Although the occurrence of 15 phytoseiid species has been known in Hungary before, 7 out of them have been collected in vineyards for the first time. A further 3 species have not been included in Hungarian faunistic works before this study. The species belonging to the families Ameroseiidae, Podocinidae and Ascidae are all new in vineyards, and Ameroseius pavidus (Koch, 1839) has been collected in the Hungarian fauna for the first time.
