Syringophilopsis turdi ( Fritsch, 1958) 

Syringophilus turdi Fritsch, 1958: 233  , fig. 4. Type material lost (in Kethley 1970: 24). Syringophilopsis turdus, Kethley 1970: 24  .

Syringophilopsis turdi, Skoracki 2011: 158  , figs. 115–117.

Syringophilus hylocichlae Clark,1964  syn. nov: 87, figs. 28–29; Types deposited in FMNH, examined. Type host: Turdus pilaris Linnaeus  ( Passeriformes  : Turdidae  ). Type locality: Germany.

Material examined. Six females and 3 males (assigned as paratypes of Syringophilus hylocichlae  ) ( FMNH uncatalogued) from Catharus fuscescens (Stephens)  ( Passeriformes  : Turdidae  ), USA: Maryland, Beltsville, 27 May 1960, coll. A. R. Clark, all material in FMNH.

Host and distribution. Catharus fuscescens (Stephens)  [new host] ( Turdidae  ) from USA (Maryland) (present paper), Turdus albicollis Vieillot  ( Turdidae  ) from Argentina ( Skoracki & Sikora, 2002), T. atrogularis Jarocki  from Kazakhstan ( Skoracki & Bochkov 2010), T. iliacus Linnaeus  from Poland and Slovakia (Skoracki 2011), T. migratorius Linnaeus  from USA ( Georgia) (Skoracki et al. 2008), T. philomelos Brehm  from Poland (Skoracki 2011), Russia ( Bochkov & Galloway 2001) and Slovakia (Skoracki 2004), T. pilaris Linnaeus  from Germany ( Fritsch 1958), Poland (Skoracki 2011) and Slovakia (Skoracki 2004).

Remarks. Examination of the type material of Syringophilus hylocichlae  described by Clark (1964) and deposited in the FMNH, allow us to synonymize this species with Syringophiliopsis turdi ( Fritsch, 1958)  . All morphological features and setae measurements of S. hylocichlae  perfectly correspond with S. turdi  .
