We give a list of 5 families 49 genera, and 180 species of acaroid mites recorded in the Northern and Eastern Asia (Asian part of Russia, South Korea, Ja­pan, and China).

The following new synonymies and combinations are proposed: Tortonia Oudemans, 1911 (=Hyohondania Sasa, 1952, syn. nov.); Sancassania polyphyllae (Zachvatkin, 1941) (=Sancassania berteanaeursae Samšiňák, 1970 syn. nov.); Mezorhizoglyphus Kadzhaja, 1966 (=Boletacarus Volgin et Mironov, 1980 syn. nov.); Tortonia kanoi (Sasa, 1952) comb. nov. (from Hyohondania), Tortonia jinyunensis (Zhang at Li, 2003) comb. nov. (from Sinosuidasia).
