All the known species of Saemundssonia from the Sterninae are discussed, and two new species are described. The species of previous authors described from more than one host, and therefore usually composite, are restricted to one type host and redescribed and figured.Neotypes have been erected for species of which the original type material is presumed to be lost and where material from the type host is available.
