( Figs. 17View FIGURE 17 A, B)

Picobia alectoris Fain et al., 2000: 65  , figs. 103–109; Skoracki et al. 2004: 164. Type deposited in RBINSAbout RBINS, examined. Columbiphilus alectoris, Skoracki 2011: 374  ; Skoracki & Sikora 2011: 26; Skoracki & Hromada 2013: 194, figs. 1 and 2. Type host: Alectoris  rufa (Linnaeus) ( Galliformes  : Phasianidae  ). Type locality: France.

Host range and distribution. Monoxenous species associated with Alectoris  rufa (Linnaeus) ( Galliformes  : Phasianidae  ) in France (Skoracki & Sikora 2011).

Remarks. Although this species was has been originally described based on material collected from Alectoris  sp. from Rwanda ( Fain et al. 2000: 65), no bird species from this genus occurs in the African region. Because, all known species of Alectoris  spp. are restricted in distribution to the Palaearctic, the Sino-Jappanese, or the Saharo- Arabian regions ( Clements et al. 2014), this suggests that the Rwanda locality should be excluded from the distribution-list of this quill mite species. Due to these circumstances we designate the bird species Alectoris  rufa as a type host and France as a type locality for C. alectoris  .
