We report parasitic mites from six species of land snails, which are listed in Prefectural Red Lists and/or Red Data Books authorized by Ministry of the Environment Government of Japan and Prefectural Governments in Japan; Riccardoella reaumuri Fain and van Goethem, 1986 were found from Euhadra brandtii sapporo Ijima, 1891 in Hokkaido, Oxyloma hirasei Pilsbry, 1901 in Ibaraki, and Phaeohelix submandarina Pilsbry, 1890 in Kagoshima. Riccardoella tokyoensis Waki and Shimano, 2018 were sampled from Tauphaedusa tau Boettger, 1877 in Ibaraki, Megalophaedusa surugensis Kuroda, 1936 in Kanagawa, and Megalophaedusa yagurai Kuroda, 1936 in Tokyo. Extinction risks of the two mites should be low because they are found in land snails which are currently common and do not appear in any categories of Red List and Red Data Book.
