  • The louse genus Lunaceps Clay and Meinertzhagen, 1939, parasitic on shorebirds (Charadriiformes: Scolopacidae) is re-vised. Six new species and one new subspecies of Lunaceps Clay and Meinertzhagen, 1939 parasitic on shorebirds (Char-adriiformes, Scolopacidae) are described. They are L. enigmaticus sp. nov. from Stilt Sandpiper Micropalama himantopus (Bonaparte, 1826), L. kukri sp. nov. from Long-billed Curlew Numenius americanus Bechstein, 1812, L. mintoni sp. nov.from Great Knot Calidris… CONTINUE READING
