The genus Zetzellia Oudemans (Acariformes: Stigmaeidae) is reported for the first time from Pakistan as well as from South Asia, with a new species Z. sialkotensis sp. nov. The new species is described and illustrated based on both female and male, collected from Sorghum halepense L. (Poaceae) in association with Tetranychus spp. (Acariformes: Tetranychidae) from Sialkot, Punjab, Pakistan. The species, Eustigmaeus segnis (Koch) is new to the mite fauna of Pakistan. Distribution, host data and a key to all reported stigmaeid species from Pakistan are provided.
