We consider that there are now three recognizable species of lice of the genus Colpocephalum sen. lat. occurring on owls, including a new species described here. These species and their respective host ranges are as follows: C. pectinatum Osborn from Speotyto cunicularia, Athene brama, and Otus bakkamoena; C. brachysomum Kellogg and Chapman from Asio flammeus and Bubo virginianus; and C. cholibae, new species, from Otus chohba. C. menoponoides Ewing is considered as a species sedis incertae.
