The chewing lice of the genus Philopterus parasitic on drongos (Dicruridae) are reviewed. Both sexes of the two species previously known from dicrurid hosts-P. trabecula (Piaget, 1880) and P. kalkalichi Ansari, 1955-are redescribed and illustrated. A new species, Philopterus petrescuae Adam is described from Dicrurus hottentottus from Indonesia. A lectotype for P. trabecula is designated. A record of Philopterus crassipes (Burmeister, 1838) from Dicrurus remifer (Temminck) is discussed and considered to be the result of straggling or contamination. © 2011.

The prevalence, intensities of infestation, range of infestation and population composition of two phthirapteran species, Ardeicola expallidus Blagoveshtchensky (Phthiraptera: Philopteridae) and Ciconiphilus decimfasciatus Boisduval and Lacordaire (Menoponidae) on seventy cattle egrets were recorded during August 2004 to March 2005, in India. The frequency distribution patterns of both the species were skewed but did not correspond to the negative binomial model. The oviposition sites, egg laying patterns and the nature of the eggs of the two species were markedly different.
