Specimens of 13 families of mites were recovered from 18 species of adult tabanids (in the genera Chrysops, Hybomitra and Tabanus) in Quebec (Canada), Connecticut and Alabama (USA). The majority of mites were phoretic deutonymphs of 4 astigmatid families: Acaridae (Schwiebea ?), Hemisarcoptidae (Congovidia and Divilia), Histiostomatidae (Bonomoia) and Winterschmidtiidae (Calvolia).
