Both sexes of Ophiomegistus joppae, O. blumi and O. iriani spp. nov. are figured and described from scincid lizards in New Guinea (unidentified, Sphenomorphus derooyae (de Jong) and Emoia pallidiceps de Vis, respectively). The previously unknown male of O. australicus (Womersley) is described from an Australian skink (Egernia frerei Günther). A new snake host (Micropechis ikaheka (Lesson), Elapidae) is listed from New Guinea for the widespread O. luzonensis Banks.
