Abstract: Fifty-one species of the haemosporidian genera: Haemoproteus, Leucocytozoon and Plasmodium and a sporozoite of Lankesterella from the blood of birds trapped in Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, Sarawak and Java are described and taxonomically evaluated. Five new species are described: Haemoproteus alcippe, type host Alcippe perracensis; H. copsychi, type host Copsychus malabaricus; H. obtusus, type host Garrulax mitratus; H. tenuis, type host Stachyris nigricollis and Plasmodium (Giovannolaia) ninoxi, type host Ninox scutulata. Haemoproteus rhipiduri Bennett, Bishop & Peirce 1991, Leucocytozoon pittae Bennet & Peirce, 1992 and L. pycnonoti Bennett, Earle & Peirce, 1992 are found to be valid species. © National University of Singapore.
