Abstract

The following new species of Onchocercidae, Splendidofilariinae, (Nematoda), are described from Indian birds: Chandlerella buckleyi from Leiopicus mahrattensis blanfordi, C. himalayansis from Cerchneis tinnunculus interstinctus, C. alii from Motacilla maderaspatensis; Splendidofilaria singhi from Motacilla maderaspatensis, S. alii from Leptocoma asiatica asiatica. Chandlerella stantchinskyi Gilbert, 1930 is recorded for the first time from India, and from a new host, Uroloncha striata striata. Keys are given to the species of the genera Chandlerella and Splendidofilaria.
