The first phylogeny reconstructed solely for amblyceran genera is presented. This study, based on an extensive comparison of adult morphology and a rigorous cladistic analysis, considers generic exemplars from 4 families of amblyceran lice (Menoponidae, Boopiidae, Laemobothriidae and Ricinidae). The monophyly and evolutionary relationships of these families are strongly supported and there is good support for Menoponidae and Boopiidae as sister taxa. The relationships of the families are not… Expand
