The broadly distributed mite Parasitellus fucorum is recorded by the first time associated with the Canarian bumblebee, Bombus canariensis. Out of 173 bumblebee queens collected in several localities belonging to the island of Tenerife, 15 were found to have phoretic deutonymphs on their bodies, which represents the 8.7% over the total number.
