Corvonirmus pleuropelios Mey, 2017 

Corvonirmus pleuropelios Mey, 2017: 120  , fig. 40, pl. V: fig. 6, pl. VI: fig. 1.

Type host: Corvus mellori Mathews, 1912  —little raven.

Type locality: Toganmain , Groongal New South Wales, Australia  .

Remarks. The female subgenital plates of Co. pleuropelios Mey, 2017  and Co. orruaticus Mey, 2017  (plate VI: fig. 1 and plate IV: fig. 6, respectively) seem to differ and, although tenuously separated from the other two new species of Australian Corvonirmus  described by Mey (2017), we accept Co. pleuropelios  as a valid species. We have examined additional specimens from the type host of Co. pleuropelios  and can confirm that it is a distinct species. However, a thorough redescription and more illustrations are needed to properly characterize this species.
