Abstract:

A new genus and two new species of quill mites (Acari: Syringophilidae) are described and figured from birds of the order Musophagiformes. Blaszakia gen. nov.differs from the closely related Charadriphilus Bochkov et Chistyakov, 2001 by the rounded posterior margin of the stylophore and small number of chambers in the peritremal branches. The first new species – B. tauracos sp. nov. was recorded from Tauraco livingstoni (Gray) from Tanzania and from T. schalowi (Reichenov) (Musophagidae) from Guinea, the second – B. rossae sp. nov. was recorded from Musophaga rossae Gould (Musophagidae) from the Democratic Rep. of Congo.Syringophilid mites are recorded from birds of this order for the first time.
