Publication in Spanish. Title: Nuevos registros de piojos Trichodectidae (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera) para Uruguay.

The lice (Phthiraptera) are a poorly studied group in Uruguay. In this work new contributions for the family Trichodectidae, as well as the listing of all registered species until the moment in the country, are carried. Eutrichophilus cordiceps Mjöberg, 1910, Neotrichodectes chilensis Werneck, 1948, Stachiella fallax (Werneck, 1948) and Trichodectes galictidis Werneck, 1934 are considered new records for the country. Additionally Bovicola caprae (Gurlt, 1843) and Trichodectes canis (De Geer, 1778) are correctly documented and confirmed through material deposited in collection. In this way, the number of Trichodectidae species confirmed for Uruguay rises to 12.
