A small collection of marsupial lice made by Dr F.S. Lukoschus in the Kim­ berley Division of Western Australia contains a new species of Boopia and of Latumcephalum, described below, and one known species of Boopia and one of Paraboopia. 
A morphological phylogeny for four families of amblyceran lice (Phthiraptera: Amblycera: Menoponidae, Boopiidae, Laemobothriidae, Ricinidae)
TLDR
This study is the first phylogeny presented solely for amblyceran genera, and strong support was found for deep branch relationships between the families and in some cases for supra-generic groupings within families.

A revision of the Australasian Boopiidae (Insecta : Phthiraptera), with notes on the Trimenoponidae
The louse family Boopiidae, parasitic on marsupials in Australia and New Guinea, is revised on the basis of much new material from wild hosts. Important morphological features, particularly the
The species of living marsupials: an annotated list
TLDR
Australian marsupials include a wide range of herbivores, insectivores and carnivores, and the group lacks only conspicuous rodent-like and bat-like forms — significantly, relatively recently immigrant placental mammals fill these roles.
RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN BOOPIA (Phthiraptera: Insecta) WITH A DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES
TLDR
Boopia emersoni is described from specimens from a New Guinea marsupial Satanellus albopunctatus, a typical Boopia with the exception of certain characters on the venter of the head which separate it from all known species of that genus.
