The examination of more than 200 species of birds by Rausch during the past few years, has disclosed a number of interesting strigeids, some of which are considered in the present paper. Three species appear to be undescribed and two of these are of particular interest in that they occur in passeriform birds, a group rarely parasitized by strigeids. In addition to the descriptions of the new species, remarks concerning Hysteromorpha triloba (Rudolphi, 1819) are included.
