Because type material cannot be located and the original description is inadequate, this is a nomen nudum. This species may not even belong in the genus Linognathus (Ferris, 1951). [ex. Durden, L. A., Musser, G. G. 1994. Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History 218: 1-90]
Taxon Citation Remarks:
Citation information points to the most recent interpretation of the taxon name (not the original, which is absent from the sucking louse checklist).
