Seven species of Ornithonyssinae are recorded from Surinam. Of these, three are described as new: Chiroptonyssus brennani spec. nov., from Molossops (Cynomops) planirostris; Steatonyssus surinamensis spec. nov., from Eptesicus melanopterus; Mitonyssoides stercorals gen. et spec. nov., from Molossus molossus.
