Neomicrodispus sibiriensis sp.n. (Acari: Microdispidae), collected from a decaying tree stump in Western Siberia, Russia, is described. After studying the type material for Neomicrodispus iranicus Hajiqanbar et Hosseininaveh, 2014, the diagnosis of the genus Neomicrodispus Hajiqanbar et Hosseininaveh, 2014 was modified. In addition, a key to the world genera of the family Microdispidae is provided.
