The species of the genus Quadraceps occirring on the Tringinae have been much confused but are easily seperable by means of differences in the male genitalia. The known species are redescribed in this paper and three new species are redescribed; in all instances photographs of both sexes and line-drawings of the male genitalia are given. The possible bearing of the distribution of these Mallophaga on te relationships of their hosts is briefly discussed.
