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… 
Redescription of Gyropus parvus (Ewing, 1924) (Insecta: Phthiraptera: Amblycera: Gyropidae) from Tucos-Tucos (Rodentia: Ctenomyidae: Ctenomys) in Patagonia, Argentina
TLDR
Sexual dimorphism was mainly shown by differences in body size and abdominal chaetotaxy, with females being 17.5% larger than males and with more setae in each cluster.
Patterns of host–parasite associations in tropical lice and their passerine hosts in Cameroon
TLDR
This study supports the importance of complex biotic interactions in tropical environments by finding significant congruence in host–parasite distance matrices, mainly driven by associations between Brueelia lice and passerine species of the Waxbill (Estrildidae) family, and Myrsidea louse and their Bulbul (Pycnonotidae) host species.
PARASITES AND DISEASES OF THE AUKS (ALCIDAE) OF THE WORLD AND THEIR ECOLOGY—A REVIEW
TLDR
Growing evidence indicates prey switching by auk species alters their endoparasitic fauna and the role of parasitism in host population dynamics and as reservoirs is discussed in the context of seabird ecology as a whole.
Cladistic Analysis of Species Infesting (Amblycera: Menoponidae) Fowls of District Hyderabad, Sindh, Pakistan
TLDR
The present research work covers the phylogentic relationship of five species belonging to a family Menoponidae, recovered from variety of fowls as host from district Hyderabad, Sindh Pakistan, and analyses cladistically by cladogram.
Chewing Lice (Phthiraptera: Amblycera, Ischnocera) From Some Wild Birds in the Kizilirmak Delta (Turkey)
TLDR
It is reported, for the first time, the presence of three chewing louse species - bird species associations in the Turkish parasitological fauna: menacanthus curuccae (Schrank, 1776) ex Acrocephalus scirpaceus and Sylvia borin; and Menacanthus eurysternus (Burmeister, 1838) ex Turdus merula.
