Abstract

Crotophagisyringophilus io n. g., n. sp. is described from the quills of Crotophaga ani Linnaeus (Cuculiformes: Cuculidae) in Argentina and Bolivia. This new genus is closely related to Megasyringophilus Fain, Bochkov & Mironov, 2000, but differs from it by the presence of a longitudinally divided propodonotal shield, fused apodemes I and II, and a setal pattern of the propodonotal region arranged 2-1-1-1-1.
