The Comoros Archipelago is constituted of four islands. These islands are located in the North Mozambique Channel in the Indian Ocean, one of the world's hotspots of biodiversity. Despite this status of hotspot, only one species of Phytoseiidae was known from this Archipelago, from Mayotte: Phytoseius mayottae . No species were recorded from the three other main islands. We report in this paper the results of a preliminary survey in Great Comoro or ¿Grande Comore¿ Island also called Ngazidja in the Comorian language (= Shikomori) with five species recorded.
