Three species and one subspecies of lice in the genus Myrsidea are described and illustrated from passerine hosts from the Galapagos Islands. New taxa are: Myrsidea darwini new species (type host Geospiza fuliginosa Gould, Emberizidae); Myrsidea nesomimi nesomimi new species and subspecies (type host Nesomimus macdonaldi Ridgway, Mimidae); and Myrsidea nesomimi borealis new subspecies (type host Nesomimus parvulus (Gould), Mimidae). Myrsidea ridulosa (Kellogg & Chapman) is recorded for the…

Chewing lice of the genus Myrsidea (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae) from New World warblers (Passeriformes: Parulidae) from Costa Rica, with descriptions of four new species
TLDR
Recordings of undescribed Myrsidea representing new louse-host associations for Basileuterus tristriatus and Parula pitiayumi are discussed.
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.
TLDR
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 quadrifasciata (Phthiraptera: Amblycera) – a unique host generalist among highly host-specific chewing lice
TLDR
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 genus Myrsidea (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae) from Turdidae (Passeriformes) of Costa Rica, with descriptions of seven new species.
A total of 166 individuals from 10 bird species belonging to the family Turdidae were examined for chewing lice in Costa Rica during 2004, 2009 and 2010. A total of 12 species of the louse genus
The Chewing Lice (Insecta, Phthiraptera) Fauna of the Swainson's Warbler, Limnothlypis swainsonii (Aves, Parulidae)
TLDR
Examination of Swainson's warblers for lice fauna at three study sites in Arkansas, USA found that eight birds were parasitized with 16 lice of two new species belonging to two genera Myrsidea, including a key for females of the genus Myr sidea that parasitize Parulidae (Passeriformes).
Where are the species limits? Morphology versus genetics in Neotropical chewing lice of the genus Myrsidea (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae), with description of three new species
TLDR
A 379 bp portion of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I ( COI ) gene was sequenced in order to assess relative genetic divergence among Myrsidea populations.
Chewing lice of the genus Myrsidea (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae) from the Cardinalidae, Emberizidae, Fringillidae and Thraupidae (Aves: Passeriformes) from Costa Rica, with descriptions of four new species
A total of 376 individuals of 35 bird species belonging to the families Cardinalidae, Emberizidae, Fringillidae, and Thraupidae were examined for chewing lice in Costa Rica in 2004, 2009 and 2010. A
An annotated checklist of parasitic lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera) from the Galápagos Islands.
TLDR
A host-parasite list, and a list of hosts which breed in the Galápagos Islands but without lice recorded from them are included, and four lectotypes from the Kellogg Collection are formally designate.
Myrsidea povedai (Phthiraptera: Menoponidae), a New Species of Chewing Louse From Phainoptila melanoxantha (Passeriformes: Bombycillidae)
TLDR
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.
Remarkable levels of avian louse (Insecta: Phthiraptera) diversity in the Congo Basin
TLDR
