The morphology of the male genitalia and the internal genital sclerite of the female is described for species of the Heterodoxus octoseriatus group. Homologous sclerites and spines, required for phylogenetic analyses, are identified. Three species, H. closei n. sp., H. hughendensis n. sp. and H. briscoei n. sp., are described and, with the benefit of a new, large series of lice, the other eight species are revised. New data on type-hosts are provided and a number of questions raised by previous… 

Phylogeny of the Heterodoxus octoseriatus group (Phthiraptera: Boopiidae) from rock-wallabies (Marsupialia: Petrogale)

The phylogenetic position of the Heterodoxus octoseriatus group is inferred from morphological characters. Two character states support monophyly of this group. Another indicates that its

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

Chromosomal rearrangements in rock wallabies, Petrogale (Marsupialia: Macropodidae). III. G-banding analysis of Petrogale inornata and P. penicillata

Petrogale inornata was found to retain plesiomorphic chromosomes 3 and 4 but possessed an apomorphic inverted chromosome 5 (5i), which appears identical with the 5i found in two other Queensland taxa and can be derived from the ancestral chromosome 5 by an extensive paracentric inversion or a centromeric transposition.

Slide-mounting of Lice: a Detailed Description of the Canada Balsam technique

The author has had the unfortunate experience of having to examine type specimens mounted in polyvinyl alcohol which showed marked signs of deterioration after only 15 years, and has led the author to publish the basic Canada balsam technique in the hope that it will facilitate good standardised results by workers in this field.

The use of fine needles made from tungsten wire has been known to experimental biologists for several years, but does not seem to be widely known among malaria entomologists.
