Three new ceratophyllid fleas are described from collections made in Nepal. Callopsylla (Orneacus) fusca sp. n., an ectoparasite of certain passerine birds at high elevations, is a dark species much resembling some members of the genus Monopsyllus in the modified segments of the male. Both Citellophilus mygala sp. n. and C. atallahi sp. n. differ from most other members of the genus in the possession of a pair of short, spiniform setae on the caudal margin of the movable process of the male. They differ from each other in the shape of the movable process and the proportions of the apex of the ninth sternite. A brief history of the genus Callopsylla is presented and comparisons are made with closely related genera.
