Corvonirmus orientalis Mey, 2017 

Corvonirmus orientalis Mey, 2017: 121  , fig. 46–48, pl. VI: figs 2–3.

Type host: Corvus corone orientalis Eversmann, 1841  —carrion crow.

Type locality: Chingan , China  .

Remarks. We have not examined material from the type host of Co. orientalis  , but Mey’s (2017) description is sufficiently illustrated to distinguish it from morphologically close species. The closest species to Co. orientalis  is Co. uncinosus  but, as Mey (2017) indicates, these two species differ in the degree of tergopleurite reduction, in head shape, and in the mesosome, which seems much smaller in Co. orientalis  than in Co. uncinosus  . Therefore, we regard Co. orientalis  as a valid species.
