The genus Formicaricola, previously thought to contain 8 species, has been determined to consist of only 2: F. analoides Carriker (type host: Formicarius analis saturatus Ridgway) and F. willisi Oniki and Emerson [type host: Chamaeza campanisona (Lichtenstein)]. Six species described by Carriker are placed as junior synonyms of F. analoides: F. costaricensis (type host: Fromicarius analis umbrosus Ridgway), F. mexicana (type host: Formicarius analis moniliger Sclater), F. sanctaemartae (type host: Formicarius analis virescens Todd), F. beni [type host: Formicarius analis analis (d'Orbigny and Lafresnaye)], F. colmae (type host: Formicarius colma amazonicus Hellmayr), and F. chocoana (type host: Formicarius nigricapillus destructus Hartert). Formicaricola analoides is redescribed and illustrated.
