<p>For this paper, I investigated whole past records of skin mites and fur mites (Acariformes: Sarcoptoidea) in Japan. As a result, I discovered a total 17 records related to 11 species belonging to Myocoptidae, Listrophoridae, Chirodiscidae, and Atopomelidae. </p><p>Until today, Myocoptes japonensis japonensis, Trichoecius tenax, Afrolistrophorus apodemi, Metalistrophorus pagenstecheri, Metalistrophorus sciuricola, Pteromychirus lukoschusi, and Alabidocarpus fujii have been noted in wild mammals. In addition, Leporacarus gibbus and Lynxacarus radovskyi have been found in companion mammals. Furthermore, Myocoptes musculinus, L. gibbus, and Chirodiscoides caviae have been gathered from laboratory mammals.</p>
