The number of species of Laboulbeniales in Panama is raised to 78. An alphabetical parasite-host list of Panamanian Laboulbeniales is given. Additionally, the following new records are presented for neighboring areas: Chitonomyces paradoxus on Laccophilus proximus from the Bahamas; Gloeandromyces nycteribiidarum on Trichobius yunkeri from Costa Rica; Herpomyces paranensis on Archimandrita tessellata from Colombia and Costa Rica; Hesperomyces palustris on Coleomegilla maculata from Cuba; Laboulbenia fallax on Gyretes sp. from Trinidad; L. flabelliformis on Asphaera nobilitata from Trinidad; L. funeralis on Gyrinus sp. from Costa Rica; and L. systenae on Systena basalis from Haiti and on S. s-littera from Trinidad.
