Annotation:A new species of parasitic cheyletid mites, Ornithoheyletia phylloscopi sp.n. (Cheyletidae), is described from the willow warbler Phylloscopus trochilus L. (Paseriformes: Sylviidae) basing on materials collected in Leningrad region (Russia) and in Kiev region (Ukraine). The females of O.phylloscopi differ from females of the closely related O.leiothrix Fain, 1972 by lesser size of idiosoma and by barbed setae vsl on tarsi II-III. Heteromorphic male of О.phylloscopi differs from that of O.leiothrix by narrower rostrum with narrowed and shortened lateral lobes, and by the slit-like lateral recesses posterior to these lobes.
