    One hundred and seventy individuals of five species of manakins were examined for chewing lice in Costa Rica. Six species of chewing lice were identified. Chewing lice or their eggs were found on 26% individuals of Chiroxiphia linearis, the most numerous manakin species examined. There were significant differences in prevalences and intensities of infestation between males and females. No lice were found on females (n=28) compared to 35% prevalence in males. In older males, the higher prevalence and mean intensity of infestation was found. Description and illustrations are given for a new species Tyranniphilopterus toledo Sychra, sp. n. from Chiroxiphia linearis. Both sexes of Tyranniphilopterus bruneri are redescribed. New host records are Manacus candei for Ricinus invadens; Corapipo altera for Ricinus pessimalis; Chiroxiphia linearis for Myrsidea andyolsoni. These are the first louse records from Chiroxiphia linearis.
