Where are the species limits? Morphology versus genetics in Neotropical chewing lice of the genus Myrsidea (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae), with description of three new species
TLDR
A 379 bp portion of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I ( COI ) gene was sequenced in order to assess relative genetic divergence among Myrsidea populations.
Diversity and abundance of lice on Speckled Mousebird Colius striatus and Red-capped Lark Calandrella cinerea in two ecologically different habitats in central Kenya
TLDR
The findings indicate that prevalence of lice is high in social species, such as Mousebirds, compared to the less social species like Red-capped Lark, and that there are two new host-parasite associations reported for Red- capped Larks, suggesting that there is more information not yet known about Kenyan avifauna parasites.
Five new species of Myrsidea Waterston (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae) from tanagers (Passeriformes: Thraupidae) in Panama
TLDR
Five new species parasitic on members of this avian family are described and Sequences of a portion of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene were compared to other species of Myrsidea and were highly divergent.
Phylogenetics and host‐specificity of the mega‐diverse louse genus Myrsidea (Amblycera: Menoponidae)
TLDR
There are two separate groups of Myrsidea that parasitize toucans, and that both are nested within Myr sidea found on perching birds, suggesting that these toucan ectoparasites may have arisen from two independent host switching events.
New data on the taxonomy and distribution of ten Neotropical chewing lice of the genus Myrsidea (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae), including the description of a new species.
TLDR
Seven other previously known species or subspecies of the louse genus Myrsidea are recorded and discussed from passerine birds of the Neotropical Region, and data increase knowledge of intraspecific morphological variability within these species, and also of their host and geographical distribution.
Six new species of Myrsidea Waterston, 1915 (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae) from New World jays of the genus Cyanocorax Boie (Passeriformes: Corvidae), with notes on the chorionic structure of eggs
TLDR
The only species of previously named Myrsidea Waterston, 1915 from Neotropical jays of the genus Cyanocorax Boie, is redescribed and six new species of lice in the genus Myr sidea are described and a key to the identification of both sexes is provided.
Chewing lice of genus Myrsidea (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae) from Turdidae (Passeriformes) of Costa Rica, with descriptions of seven new species.
A total of 166 individuals from 10 bird species belonging to the family Turdidae were examined for chewing lice in Costa Rica during 2004, 2009 and 2010. A total of 12 species of the louse genus
Chewing lice of the genus Myrsidea (Phthiraptera: Amblycera: Menoponidae) from passerines (Aves: Passeriformes) in South Africa, with descriptions of three new species
TLDR
A total of 144 individuals of 46 bird species belonging to the 20 families were examined for chewing lice in South Africa and three new species of Myrsidea were discovered.
Another puzzle piece in the systematics of the chewing louse genus Myrsidea, with a description of a new genus Apomyrsidea
A new avian chewing louse genus Apomyrsidea gen. nov. is described based on species parasitizing birds in the family Formicariidae. Diagnostic characteristics and phylogenetic analyses were used to
New host records and descriptions of five new species of Myrsidea Waterston, 1915 (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae) from passerine birds (Aves: Passeriformes)
Three species of previously described Myrsidea from the birds Lochmias nematura obscurata Cabanis, Automolus ochrolaemus (Tschudi, 1844) (both Furnariidae) and Pachyramphus cinnamomeus Lawrence, 1861
