Birds in the Huinay area, Los Lagos region, Chile, were studied for parasites. Here we report 2 new genera and species of the family Dilepididae (Cyclophyllidea) found in common local passerines: , was found in (Tyrannidae) and , was found in (Furnariidae). Other dilepidid parasites are reported for the first time from (Tyrannidae) and from 2 species of Rhinocryptidae. Jadhav & Shinde, 1981 is considered a species inquirenda. The very high diversity and endemism of the observed cestode fauna in the Valdivian temperate rain forests is noted.
