Three new Australian philopterid chewing louse species from parrots are described and illustrated. They are their type hosts are Neopsittaconirmus vincesmithi from Bourke's Parrot, Neopsephotus bourkii (Gould), from Western Australia and Neopsittaconirmus bushae and Echinophilopterus claytoni, both from the Bluebonnet, Northiella haematogaster (Gould), from New South Wales. A portion of the mitochondrial COI gene was sequenced for these species and other parrot lice to evaluate their genetic distinctiveness.
