new combination

Philopterus chilchil (Ansari, 1955)  , new combination

Sturnidoecus chilchil Ansari, 1955b: 59  . Sturnidoecus chilchil Ansari, 1956e: 396  . Sturnidoecus chilchil Ansari, 1958b: 77  .

Type host. Turdoides caudata caudata (Dumont, 1823)  —common babbler.

Remarks. No material of this species was examined by us. While Ansari's (1955b, 1956e) descriptions are too vague to accurately identify this species, the illustrations of his third description ( Ansari 1958b) show that it has elongated os and pos, multiple mts  macrosetae, trabeculae, posteriorly pointed dorsal anterior plate, no sternal plates, and male genitalia, all typical of the Philopterus  -complex.
