A new genus of Gamasoidea-Dipolaelaps gen. nov. of the family Laelaptidae is established with the type Dipolaelaps ubsunuris sp. nov. The description is given according to specimens taken off Allactaga sibirica from the Ubsunur hollow in the Erzinsk district of the Tuva autonomous region. Judging by certain characters the genus occupies an intermediate position between representatives of the genus Laelaps C. L. Koch and Haemolaelaps Berl. Their body is of a broadly oval shape, with thickset legs. The scutum in the females is highly sclerotized with a cruciform thickening, the genitoventral shield is narrow with only a pair of chaets. Some chaets of the pads and coxae are thickened._The males are heteromorphous.
