Abstract

A new macronyssid mite is described based on material collected by the authors in July 1981 from an elephant shrew (Elephantulus myurus Thomas and Schwann, 1906) at Kimberley, South Africa. The female of Ornithonyssus roseinnesi (Zumpt and Till, 1953) is redescribed and a key given to females of the Ethiopian species of Ornithonyssus. New host records for the genus in the Ethiopian region are presented.
