Kuhn and Ludwig (1967) recognized three subspecies of this louse: P. (P.) hamadryas hamadryas, P. (P.) hamadryas cercopitheci, and P. (P.) hamadryas cynocephali. Taxonomy of the hosts is summarized by Groves (1993). [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).
