Four new feather mite species of the genus Amerodectes Valim & Hernandes, 2010 (Proctophyllodidae: Pterodectinae) are described from New World warblers (Passeriformes: Parulidae) of USA: Amerodectes ischyros sp. nov. from Setophaga caerulescens (Gmelin, 1789), A. charitomenos sp. nov. from S. dominica (Linnaeus, 1766), A. protonotaria sp. nov. from Protonotaria citrea (Boddaert, 1783), and A. jonesborensis sp. nov. from Parkesia noveboracensis (Gmelin, 1789). Information on the DNA barcode sequence of these four species was also analyzed.
