Title in Turkish: The First Recording of Piagetiella titan (Menoponidae: Mallophaga) on a White Pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus, Linneaus) in Turkey

During the examination of a wounded white pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus) brought to the clinic of Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Selcuk University, lice infestation of the oral cavity was observed and 26 lice were collected. The lice were identified as Piagetiella titan during microscopical examination. No other report of this particular subject in Turkey was found. Therefore, this original observation is reported as the first case of P. titan infestation of a white pelican found in Turkey. This report is being included in the data of the parasitic fauna of Turkey.
