Typhlodromips montanus (Wainstein) comb. n. (Acari: Phytoseiidae) is reported for the first time from Russia. It is
redescribed and illustrated based on female and male specimens collected from the Altai Republic, Russia. This species was previously placed in the genus Neoseiulus Hughes. However, it fits well with the current concept of the genus Typhlodromips De Leon,
due to the combination of: the presence of macrosetae on GeII, GeIII and TiIII, and fixed digit of chelicera with more than six teeth.
