The checklist of oribatid mites from Georgia is updated using sampling data from more than 230 locations during field works conducted between 2016 and 2022. We report 32 species of oribatid mites, sixteen of them were collected between 2017 and 2019, six were missing in Checklist I, while eleven species are new records for the country. The genus Ameronothrus was found in Georgia for the first time, but could not be identified to species level. Additional information about the distribution of Epilohmannia styriaca Schuster, 1960, Sphaerozetes orbicularis (C.L. Koch, 1835) and Fuscozetes fuscipes (C.L. Koch, 1844) is given. For each species we provide notes about regional and global distribution as well as information about their ecology. This list brings the number of identified species known for Georgia up to 563.
