The single previously recognized species of Aotiella Eichler, A. aotophilus (Ewing), and a second species, A. hershkovitzi new species, are described and illustrated. The type host for the former is a red-necked night monkey, Aotus azarai (Humboldt), from Bolivia and Argentina, and for the latter a gray-necked night monkey, A. trivirgatus (Humboldt), from Venezuela. The host and louse distributions are discussed.
