Thirty species of water mites (Acari, Hydrachnidia) were collected from standing and slowly flowing waters in Bangladesh. These are the first records of water mites from this country. Two species, Neumania nobiprobia and Arrenurus (Rhinophoracarus) smiti are described as new for science; a first description of the male is given for Mamersopsis viridis K. Viets, 1935.
