Upon the rediscovery of seven syntypes in the collection of the United States National Museum of Natural History, a male lectotype for the louse taxon Docophorus atlanticus Kellogg, 1914 is designated from the syntype series. Detailed study of the rediscovered syntypes showed that two species (Saemundssonia cephalus (Denny, 1842) and an unidentifiable species of Saemundssonia) were included in the series.
