I present the partial results of the research on the ectoparasitic material collected from some birds species of the Romanian fauna, along a 6 year period (1996-2002); from the 20 identified chewing louse species, Austromenopon circinatum (Piaget, 1890) is a new mention for the Romanian entomological fauna, and the species Colpocephalum flavescens (Haan, 1829) and Ciconiphilus decimfasciatus (Boisduval et Lacordaire, 1835) were previously mentioned but on other hosts, not on those which I found; also three cases of secondary infestations with chewing lice are mentioned.
