Syringophilopsis fringillae ( Fritsch, 1958)  

This species was described from Fringilla coelebs Linnaeus   ( Passeriformes   : Fringillidae   ) from Germany ( Fritsch 1958). Fritsch (1958) also reported this species from Carduelis carduelis (Linnaeus)   ( Fringillidae   ), Passer montanus   ( Passeridae   ), and Hirundo rustica   ( Hirundinidae   ), all from Germany. Unfortunately, all Fritsch’s material is lost ( Kethley 1970). Later on, S. fringillae   was reported from the type host from England ( Kethley 1970; Nattress & Skoracki 2009), Poland ( Skoracki 2004b), and Russia ( Bochkov & Mironov 1998). Kethley (1970) reported this species from Carduelis carduelis   ( Fringillidae   ) from Morocco. In Kazakhstan, this species was recorded from the type host.
