This paper records the sucking lice of the genera Polyplax, Haemodipsus and Sathrax of the fanily polyplacidae. Altogether 10 species are recorded. They are: 1. Polyplax asiatica, 2. P. chinensis, 3. P. insulsa, 4. P. reclinata, 5. P. rhizomydis, 6. P. serrata, 7. P. spinulosa, 8. Haemodipsus lyricc- phalus, 9. H. setoni and 10. Sathrax dura. Among these, specimens of P. asi- atica and P. chinensis were not available to the author. P. insulsa and Po rhi- zomydis are new records from China. Rattus edwardsi and Rhizomys pruinosus are new hosts for them respectively. Tupaiphthirus dolibrifer as described by the author in 1975 should fell synomm of Sathrax dura Johnson, 1964.
