The ischnoceran chewing lice (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera) of bulbuls (Aves: Passeriformes: Pycnonotidae), with descriptions of 18 new species
The ischnoceran chewing lice known from bulbuls are discussed and revised, and 18 new species are described. These are: Brueelia celer sp. nov. from Pycnonotus cafer bengalensis Blyth, 1845 and
New species of Philopterus Nitzsch, 1818 (Ischnocera: Philopteridae), with notes on Cypseloecus Conci, 1941
TLDR
Eight new species of chewing lice in the genus Philopterus Nitzsch, 1818, parasitic on hosts in the bird families Cardinalidae, Chloropseidae, Hirundinidae, Icteridae, Motacillidae, Paridae, and Vangidae from China, Peru, South Africa, Thailand, and the USA are described and illustrated.
Light Microscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy of Colpocephalum nanum Piaget, 1890 (Phthiraptera: Amblycera: Colpocephalidae).
TLDR
Part of the specimens were photographed, and the obtained data about morphological characteristic were evaluated in detail, and information about the important criteria for diagnosis and other morphological characteristics was obtained.
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.
Two new species of Philopteroides (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera: Philopteridae) of the beckeri species-group, from New Guinean painted berrypeckers (Aves: Passeriformes: Paramythiidae).
TLDR
Two new species of the louse genus Philopteroides Mey, 2004 are described and illustrated from two host species of painted berrypeckers, endemic to New Guinea, based on their short, broad preantennal areas, and shallow median indentations of the hyaline margin.
Taxonomic, ecological and quantitative examination of chewing lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera) on Canada geese (Branta canadensis) and mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) in Manitoba, Canada
TLDR
Over 19 years chewing lice data from Canada geese and mallards were collected, Anatoecus was found exclusively on the head, Anaticola was found predominantly on the wings, Ciconiphilus, Holomenopon and Ornithobius were observed in several body regions and Trinoton was found most often on the Wings of mallards.
Three new species of chewing lice of the genus Emersoniella Tendeiro, 1965 (Insecta: Phthiraptera: Ischnocera: Philopteridae) from Papua New Guinean kingfishers and kookaburras (Aves: Coraciiformes: Alcedinidae).
TLDR
Three new species of the ischnoceran louse genus Emersoniella (Phthiraptera) are described from four species of New Guinean kingfishers and kookaburras, and a complete host-louse checklist, and an updated key to all seven species of this genus are provided.
The “Very Thankless Task”: Revision of Lunaceps Clay and Meinertzhagen, 1939 (Insecta: Phthiraptera: Ischnocera: Philopteridae), with descriptions of six new species and one new subspecies
TLDR
The louse genus Lunaceps Clay and Meinertzhagen, 1939, parasitic on shorebirds (Charadriiformes: Scolopacidae) is re-vised and L. limosella limosa Bechet, 1968, which was previously considered a junior synonym of L Limosella Timmermann, 1954, is resurrected as avalid species.
Morpho-taxonomy and new record of Goniodes gigas (Taschenberg) (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera) from Balochistan, Pakistan with a note on Goniodidae.
Goniodes gigas (Taschenberg) large chicken louse morpho-taxonomy was studied for the first time from Balochistan, Pakistan in detail with special reference to head, mouthparts, thorax, abdomen,

PORCUPINES, PALEOGEOGRAPHY, AND PARALLELISM
TLDR
An attempt will be made to show that an alternative interpretation of the Hystricomorpha, involving only more -orthodox and established migration routes, is at least as well supported by the available evidence.

TLDR
The various factors which may have been responsible for speciation in this group of parasites are discussed and comparison made with the process of speciating in free-living animals.
