The richness, diversity, abundance and prevalence of mite species associated with sigmodontine rodents of different species in Entre Rãos province, Argentina are studied. Five of the six species of mites were reported for the first time in the study area. The richness and diversity of mites was higher on Oligoryzomys flavescens check for this species in other resources and O. delticola than on Akodon azarae check for this species in other resources . Androlaelaps rotundus check for this species in other resources was dominant and exhibited higher values of mean abundance and prevalence on A. azarae, Mysolaelaps microspinosus check for this species in other resources on O. flavescens and Gigantolaelaps mattogrossensis check for this species in other resources on O. delticola.
