Abstract The phoretic deutonymphs (or hypopi) of 2 new species of Hemisarcoptidae are described from Coccinellidae, i.e. Congovidia benelux sp. nov. from Adalia bipunctata in the Netherlands and Exochomus quadripustulatus in Belgium, and Divilia exigua sp. nov. from Calvia duodecimguttata in Poland. Deutonymphs are recorded for the first time from Coccinellidae outside Britain; Congovidia coccinellidarum is recorded from Belgium and D. occidentalis from the Netherlands. Deutonymphs of Nanacarus minutus were collected from Coccinellidae from Poland and Belgium.
