Ectoparasitic fauna of African Piciformes is mostly Pteronyssinae (Avenzoariidae). Three genera, Anephippius, Conomerus and Hyonyssus form 80% of the feather mites collected from African Capitonidae and Picidae. The present paper deals with two other genera of the subfamily Pteronyssinae, less frequently found on African Piciformes. The genus Pegopteronyssus seems to be restricted to Africa and includes only P. phyllurus, a parasite of the capitonid genera Gymnobucco, Lybius, Smilorhis, Stactolaemia and Tricholaema. The genus Pteronyssus is ubiquitous. Four African species assigned to this genus are very closely related, forming a species complex: P. dicronotus, n.sp.; P. malaconotus, N.sp.; P. pachyphrichus, n.sp. and P. pycnospilus Gaud & Mouchet 1959. All of them parasitize Picidae of the genus Campethera. These 4 species are (re) described and illustrated. An identification key is provided.
