  • Lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera) are often considered a model group of parasites for studies of cospeciation because of their high host specificity, and louse species in the genus Brueelia are relatively host-specific. To test the extent of cospeciation, we reconstructed a phylogeny for Brueelia from nuclear (EF1α) and mitochondrial (COI) DNA sequences. This phylogeny was generally well resolved and supported. Two major clades within Brueelia (as well as several other lineages) were identified, and… CONTINUE READING
