The present paper deals with a small collection of parasitic mites found by Dr F. Zumpt, of the South African Institute for Medical Research, Johannesburg, in the nasal cavities of birds. The mites of this batch comprise six species, including a new one, and all belong to the family Rhinonyssidae, which is known to be confined strictly to birds. They were collected in two localities in Bechuanaland, during 1955-1956.
