The most abundant species were Insectolaelaps quadrisetus (Mesostigmata), Siculobata lentonycha (Oribata), Diapterobates humeralis (Oribata), Ereymetes propescutulis (Prostigmata), Aetiophenax ipidarius (Prostigmate), and an unidentified species of Nanacarus (Astigmata). Eight species - I quadrisetus, Proctolaelaps fiseri, Trichouropoda polytricha, Mexecheles virginiensis, A. ipidarius, E. propescutulis, Bonomota pini, and Boletoglyphus boletophagi - and four genera - Nanacarus, Elattoma, Schwiebia, and Parawinterschmidtia - were new taxa in Finland.
