During the study on the eriophyoid mite fauna of Ajabshir region in East Azerbaijan province (Iran), a new species was found on Lycium ruthenicum Murray (Solanaceae). It was described, named as Aceria ajabshiriensis n. sp. and compared with 18 other Aceria species associated with plants of the family Solanaceae. Aceria ajabshiriensis n. sp. strongly resembles Aceria eucricotes (Nalepa). Aceria ajabshiriensis n. sp. is the third eriophyoid species collected on L. ruthenicum in Iran. A list of Aceria species associated with Solanaceae plants worldwide, their type hosts, type localities, habitats and a key for identification are provided. In addition, a new combination was proposed: Aceria dunaliae (Boczek & Oleczek, 1988) n. comb.
