Fifteen species of water mites of the family Torrenticolidae are catalogued from Sicily, Italy, with literature references on their distribution in the Mediterranean basin and remarks on their autecology. Pseudotorrenticola rhynchota, Torrenticola andrei, T. algeriensis and T. cf. lusitanica were found for the first time in Italy.
