A new species of Brueelia Keler, 1936 is described and illustrated, based on lice collected from the blue-black grassquit, Volatinia jacarina (Linnaeus, 1766), in Brazil. This is the first species of Philopteridae recorded from this Neotropical passeriform species. 
Two new species of Brueelia (Phthiraptera: Philopteridas s. l.) parasitic on two species of Phrygilus (Aves: Emberizidae) from Chile.
Two new species of the genus Brueelia Kéler, 1936 are described of two species in the genus Phrygilus Cabanis, 1844 from Punitaqui, Coquimbo, IV Región, Chile: Phrygilus gayi (Gervais, 1834) and P.
A new species of Brueelia Kéler (Phthiraptera: Philopteridae) parasitic on the Common Diuca-Finch, Diuca diuca diuca (Aves: Emberizidae) in Chile.
A new species of the genus Brueelia Kéler is described as parasitic on the Common Diuca-Finch, Diuca diuca diuca, based on specimens from three localities in Chile: Punitaqui (Coquimbo Province), La
Tyranniphilopterus caiolukasi sp. n. (Phthiraptera: Philopteridae) from the yellow-olive flycatcher (Aves: Tyrannidae), with observations on gut contents
TLDR
The finding of leg segments of feather mites in the guts of some specimens is briefly discussed and illustrated and the new species is compared with T. venezuelensis and T. minutus.
Four new species of Brueelia Kéler, 1936 (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera: Philopteridae) from African songbirds (Passeriformes: Sturnidae and Laniidae).
TLDR
Four new species in the louse genus Brueelia Kéler, 1936 are described from African hosts of the families Sturnidae and Laniidae, characterized by a unique abdominal chaetotaxy and a sinuous thickening of the distal margin of the male mesosome.
The Chewing Lice (Insecta, Phthiraptera) Fauna of the Swainson's Warbler, Limnothlypis swainsonii (Aves, Parulidae)
TLDR
Examination of Swainson's warblers for lice fauna at three study sites in Arkansas, USA found that eight birds were parasitized with 16 lice of two new species belonging to two genera Myrsidea, including a key for females of the genus Myr sidea that parasitize Parulidae (Passeriformes).
Morphological revision of the hyperdiverse Brueelia -complex (Insecta: Phthiraptera: Ischnocera: Philopteridae) with new taxa, checklists and generic key
TLDR
The genus Brueelia Keler, 1936a forms the core of the so-called “Brueelia -complex”, one of the largest and most heterogeneous groups of lice (Phthiraptera) and a revision of this group is presented.
External and intestinal parasites of the Austral thrush Turdus falcklandii (Aves, Turdidae) in central Chile.
TLDR
All endoparasites collected in this study are new records in T. falcklandii and expand their distributional range to Chile.
Phylogenetic Relationships of Guimaraesiella and Priceiella (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera) from Babblers and Non-Babblers (Passeriformes)
TLDR
Some data are presented indicating that (1) the Nanling Mountain range may be a biogeographical barrier to chewing lice and (2) host participation in mixed-species feeding flocks may influence host associations in Brueelia-complex chewingLice.

The phylogeny of the louse genus Brueelia does not reflect host phylogeny
TLDR
It is argued that the high dispersal capabilities of Brueelia species, e.g. phoresis on hippoboscid flies, are a likely explanation for the incongruence between host and parasite phylogenies in this case.

Slide-mounting of Lice: a Detailed Description of the Canada Balsam technique
TLDR
The author has had the unfortunate experience of having to examine type specimens mounted in polyvinyl alcohol which showed marked signs of deterioration after only 15 years, and has led the author to publish the basic Canada balsam technique in the hope that it will facilitate good standardised results by workers in this field.
