Hosts and distribution. Parulidae  : Geothlypis philadelphia (Wilson)  from USA (Massachusetts) (present paper), Seiurus aurocapilla (Linnaeus)  from USA ( Carolina  , Florida, Maryland, Michigan) ( Clark 1964; Kethley 1970; present paper) and Canada (Manitoba) ( Bochkov & Galloway 2001), Helmitheros vermivorum (Gmelin)  from USA (Maryland) ( Clark 1964), Oreothlypis peregrina (Wilson)  [new host] from USA (Michigan) (present paper), O. ruficapilla (Wilson)  from USA (California) ( Bochkov et al. 2011), Setophaga palmarum (Gmelin)  [new host] from USA (Florida), and S. pensylvanica (Linnaeus)  [new host] from USA (Florida) (present paper).

Emberizidae  : Melospiza georgiana (Latham)  [new host] from USA (Florida) (present paper), M. lincolnii (Audubon)  [new host] from USA (Texas) ( Bochkov et al. 2011; present paper), M. melodia (Wilson)  from USA (Maryland, Texas) ( Clark 1964; present paper), Zonotrichia albicollis (Gmelin)  [new host] from USA (Florida, Texas) and Canada (Manitoba) ( Bochkov et al. 2011; present paper).

Ploceidae  : Quelea erythrops (Hartlaub)  from Togo, Pachyphantes superciliosus (Shelley)  from Togo, Ploceus baglafecht (Daudin)  from Congo ( Skoracki & Dabert 2002), and P. xanthops (Hartlaub)  from Kenya (Klimovicova et al. 2014).

Remarks. Possibilities of type material examination of Syringophilus seiuri  described by Clark (1964) and deposited in the FMNH, allows us to move this species to the genus Betasyringophiloidus  (one pair of pseudanal setae present). Because, all morphological characters and setae measurements of Syringophiloidus zonotrichia Bochkov et al., 2011  perfectly correspond with Betasyringophiloidus seiuri  we consider S. zonotrichia  as a junior synonym of B. seiuri  .
