  • Paralueheia guptai Saxena & Gupta, 2008

Species in Plagiorhynchus are divided into two subgenera: Plagiorhynchus and Prosthorhynchus.[2]

P. aznari was found infesting a long-billed curlew (Numenius americanus) from northern Mexico.[3]

Prosthorhynchus Kostylew, 1915

P. cylindraceus was found infesting the Austral thrush (Turdus falcklandii) in central Chile.[4]

Porrorchinae Golvan, 1956

L. inscripta was found infesting the Austral thrush (Turdus falcklandii) in central Chile.[4] It has also been found in the Puerto Rican lizard Anolis cristatellus.[5]
