  author={Roger D. Price and Robert Campbell Dalgleish},
The three currently recognized species of Myrsidea from passerine emberizid hosts are discussed. Thirteen new species are described and illustrated. They and their type hosts are Myrsidea campestris ex Euneornis campestris (L.), M. citrinae ex Sicalis citrina Pelzeln, M. zonotriciae ex Zonotricia capensis (Statius Muller), M.iliacae ex Passerella iliaca (Merrem), M. coronatae ex Paroaria coronata (J. F. Miller), M. sinaloae ex Melozone kieneri (Bonaparte), M. taciturni ex Arremon taciturnus…

Myrsidea quadrifasciata (Phthiraptera: Amblycera) – a unique host generalist among highly host-specific chewing lice
It is suggested that the only way to deal with these taxa is to follow concept of subspecies with the following taxa and their geographic distributon: Palearctic Region: M. quadrifasciata and M. serini, Neotropical Region): M. queleae, M. darwini, Paleotropic Region: m.
Chewing lice of the genus Myrsidea (Phthiraptera: Amblycera: Menoponidae) from passerines (Aves: Passeriformes) in South Africa, with descriptions of three new species
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.
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.
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.
Myrsidea povedai (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae), a New Species of Chewing Louse From Phainoptila melanoxantha (Passeriformes: Bombycillidae)
M. povedai is distinguished from those of other species of Myrsidea from Costa Rican passerine hosts by a unique combination of the following characteristics: well-developed hypopharynx, well-defined median gap in the rows of tergal setae, and enlarged metanotum with at least 23 setae.
Five new species of Myrsidea Waterston (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae) from saltators and grosbeaks (Passeriformes: Cardinalidae)
Five new species of Myrsidea parasitic on members of the avian family Cardinalidae are described and results from sequences of a portion of the mitochondrial COI gene for several specimens of two of these species and other species ofyrsidea are presented.
The species of Myrsidea Waterston (Insecta: Phthiraptera: Menoponidae) from the Galápagos Islands, with descriptions of new taxa
