Abstract:

A systematic study of the chewing louse genus Acidoproctus (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera: Philopteridae) clarifies the identity of specimens placed as A. moschatae (L.) in the K. C. Emerson Collection. The described species are reviewed and A. kelloggi Carriker is placed as a synonym of A. moschatae. Acidoproctus granthami Arnold, new species is described from the freckled duck [Stictonetta naevosa (Gould)] from Australia.
