Abstract: Five species of the feather mite genus Pterodectes Robin, 1877 are redescribed (type hosts are given in parenthesis): Pterodectes rutilus Robin, 1868 (the Northern House-Martin, Delichon urbicum), P. crassus Trouessart, 1885 (the Plushcrested Jay, Cyanocorax chrysops), P. gracilis Trouessart, 1885 (the Crested Oropendola, Psarocolius decumanus), P. sialiarum (Stoll, 1893) (the Eastern Bluebird Sialia sialis) and P. muticus Banks, 1909 (the Vesper Sparrow, Pooecetes gramineus). One new species, P. banksi sp. n., is described from the Eastern Phoebe, Sayornis phoebe (Tyrannidae), and a new monotypic genus Cotingodectes gen. n. is proposed to accommodate C. interifolius (Trouessart, 1899) comb. n. from the Andean Cock-of-the-Rock, Rupicola peruviana (Cotingidae), previously referred to the genus Pterodectes.
