The chewing lice: world checklist and biological overview.
World checklist of chewing lice with host associations and keys to families and genera
The biology, ecology, and evolution of chewing lice
The species of Myrsidea Waterston (Insecta: Phthiraptera: Menoponidae) from the Galápagos Islands, with descriptions of new taxa
Three species and one subspecies of lice in the genus Myrsidea are described and illustrated from passerine hosts from the Galapagos Islands. New taxa are: Myrsidea darwini new species (type host…
Multiple cophylogenetic analyses reveal frequent cospeciation between pelecaniform birds and Pectinopygus lice.
Perfect congruence between phylogenies is not found in this association, probably as a result of occasional host switching by the lice, thus emphasizing the need for improved cophylogenetic methodologies.
Enigmatic phylogeny of skuas (Aves: Stercorariidae)
Three possible explanations that might account for the discordant aspect of skua phylogeny are explored, which involve the segregation of ancestral polymorphism, convergent evolution of morphology and behaviour or inter–generic hybridization.

Phylogeny of "Philoceanus complex" seabird lice (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera) inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences.
Cophylogenetic relationships between penguins and their chewing lice
Despite the paucity of cospeciation, there is support for significant congruence between the louse and penguin phylogenies due to possible failure to speciate events (parasites not speciating in response to their hosts speciating).
