Three new species of Prolixandromyces (Ascomycetes: Laboulbeniales), all parasites on Velia (Hemiptera: Veliidae), are described and illustrated: P. lingulatus, P. rhinoceralis, and P. tenuis. A key to the five species presently known is given. The two species described originally, P. veliae and P. corniculatus, were found in Michoacan in southern Mexico; the range of P. corniculatus is extended to El Salvador. Prolixandromyces lingulatus and P. rhinoceralis were collected in Nicaragua and P. tenuis m Costa Rica.
