    Four species of Scutacarus and one of Imparipes (Acari: Scutacaridae) are documented as phoretic from alates and workers of the red imported fire ant (Solenopsis invicta Buren) in Louisiana and Tennessee, U.S.A. One, Imparipes (Imparipes) louisianae) N. sp., and two Scutacarus nanus n. sp. and Scutacarus tertius n. sp., are described. The biology and phoretic behaviors of all five species are discussed from those collected from the vicinity of Pinevill, Louisiana.
