To date, this genus has included 38 species inhabiting quills of the wing and tail feathers ( Skoracki 2011). Members of the genus Syringophiloidus  are associated with birds of the orders: Passeriformes  (35 species), Piciformes (1 species, found also on passerines), Trogoniformes (1 species) and Apodiformes (1 species) ( Skoracki et al. 2012, 2013; Glowska et al. 2012; Glowska & Schmidt 2014).
