A new genus and species of Mallophaga

  • Theresa Clay (a1)

Elsewhere (paper in the Press) the author has shown that the majority of species originally described under Goniodes, although somewhat diverse in form, are fundamentally similar and cannot be separated generically. However, there are certain species originally placed in Goniodes which are generically distinct and should be separated. Among these is a group of species, forming the new genus described below, which is distinguished in both sexes by the small size of the first segment and the characters of the terminal segments of the abdomen and in the male by the form of the clavi.
