Corvonirmus orruaticus Mey, 2017 

Corvonirmus orruaticus Mey, 2017: 116  , figs 30, 37, pl. IV: figs 5–6, pl. V: fig. 1.

Type host: Corvus orru cecilae Mathews, 1912  —Torresian crow.

Type locality: Marandoo , Western Australia, Australia  .

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