4339 Morphologies of various Mallophagan families
Comments Morphologies of various Mallophagan families. Note that this diagram is intended to illustrate the morphological diversity of the "mallophaga" and should not be interpreted as a classification scheme for chewing lice. I am currently preparing a generic phylogeny for the Ischnocera however no such scheme exists for the Amblycera to date.
