Three phthirapteran species (two Ischnocera and one Amblycera) were recovered from hundred ducks in district Bareilly and Rampur during 2011–2012. Prevalence of Anaticola crassicornis was comparatively higher (31 %) than that of Anatoecus dentatus (16 %) and Holomenpon leucoxanthum (28 %). However, the intensity of infestation of H. leucoxanthum (22.89) remained higher than the other two species. Distribution pattern of all lice were skewed but negative binomial model was not found to be a good fit. Sex ratios of all three species were skewed in favour of females (A. crassicornis—1:1.23, H. leucoxanthum—1:1.19, A. dentatus—1:1.72) and nymphal population exceeded the adult population (A. crassicornis—1:1.26, H. leucoxanthum—1:1.12, A. dentatus—1:1.61). © 2013, Indian Society for Parasitology.

Two phthirapteran species (an amblyceran Chapinia clayae and an ischnoceran, Buceroemersonia clarkei) were recovered from eight Indian grey Horn Bills, during 2009 in district Rampur (India). The occurrence of B. clarkei on Indian birds has not been noted earlier. The population characteristics of both the species have been recorded. On the basis of crop contents C. clayae appeared to be a probable haematophagous. The egg chorion of B. clarkei appeared smooth that of C.clayae bears sculpturing. © 2013, Indian Society for Parasitology.

Survey of literature showed that the population characteristics of the phthirapterans parasitizing striated babblers deserved investigation. Hence, 30 birds were examined during 2007-2009 in district Rampur U. P. The prevalence of an amblyceran louse, Myrsidea salimalii on striated babblers was 40%. The mean intensity of infestation and the sample mean abundance were 33. 5 and 13. 4, respectively. The variance to mean ratio of the population exceeded unity (36. 24). The frequency distribution pattern of the louse was aggregated but did not conform to the negative binomial model. Females outnumbered the males in natural condition (M:F-1:1. 4) while the nymphal population had an edge over adult population (A:N-1:1. 3). © 2011 Indian Society for Parasitology.

The new species Menacanthus palmai collected from Coturnix coromandelica (Gmelin), in Rampur district (UP), India, is described and illustrated. Morphologically the new species is close to M. abdominalis from Coturnix coturnix but differs in having long pointed ventral processes on the postero-medial angles of the second to fifth pleurites. Furthermore, these two species also differ in the number of tergal and sternal abdominal setae, and the morphology of the male genitalia. Another species, Menacanthus pallipes from C. chinensis, does not have ventral processes on the postero-medial angles of pleurites. © 2012 Indian Society for Parasitology.

The chewing lice of the genus Philopterus parasitic on drongos (Dicruridae) are reviewed. Both sexes of the two species previously known from dicrurid hosts-P. trabecula (Piaget, 1880) and P. kalkalichi Ansari, 1955-are redescribed and illustrated. A new species, Philopterus petrescuae Adam is described from Dicrurus hottentottus from Indonesia. A lectotype for P. trabecula is designated. A record of Philopterus crassipes (Burmeister, 1838) from Dicrurus remifer (Temminck) is discussed and considered to be the result of straggling or contamination. © 2011.

The prevalence, intensities of infestation, range of infestation and population composition of two phthirapteran species, Ardeicola expallidus Blagoveshtchensky (Phthiraptera: Philopteridae) and Ciconiphilus decimfasciatus Boisduval and Lacordaire (Menoponidae) on seventy cattle egrets were recorded during August 2004 to March 2005, in India. The frequency distribution patterns of both the species were skewed but did not correspond to the negative binomial model. The oviposition sites, egg laying patterns and the nature of the eggs of the two species were markedly different.
