Description: A total of 818 specimens of Ips typographus L. were investigated for the presence of phoretic mites. They were collected from 4 localities in Vitosha Mountain, near Sofia. Five phoretic mites were found: Dendrolaelaps quadrisetus, Trichouropoda polytricha, Histiostoma piceae, Uroobovella ipidis and Proctolaelaps jiseri. 11.1 % from all investigated specimens of Ips typographus had phoretic mites, but local percentages varied from 5.2% in, Zlatni Mostove to 51.1 % in Yavorova polyana. This is the first report of phoretic mites associated with I. typographus in Bulgaria.
