Abstract

Acanthocephala collected from birds of El Recreo, Zelaya, Nicaragua are reported. Descriptions of new species include Centrorhynchus kuntzi sp. n. from Buteo magnirostris, C. nicaraguensis sp. n. from Dromococcyx phasianellus, and C. crotophagicola sp. n. from Crotophaga sulcirostris and Piaya cayana. Centrorhynchus albidus Meyer, 1932 is redescribed from one male specimen found in Ictinia plumbea, and C. sp. is reported from Tyto alba. Lueheia inscripta (Westrumb, 1821) Travassos 1919 is reported for the first time from Turdus grayi.
