In a previous paper I descriptionbed a small collection of nasal mites from South African birds (Fain, 1957c). Through the generosity of Dr. F. Zumpt, of the South African Institute for Medical Research, I received in 1957 and 1958 several new batches of these interesting mites * . This collection includes two specimens (collected from the nasal cavities of a bat) belonging to a new genus and a new species, and 4 new species of Rhinonyssid mites from birds.
