oa Madoqua - A new species of Linognathus (Anoplura: Linognathidae) from the Damara dikdik
A new species named Linognathus damarensis is descriptionbed from the Damara dikdik. The new species belongs to the pithodes species-group, and a key to the latter is provided. Because of the discontinuous distribution of the host, a detailed examination of the lice on the isolated populations might provide useful information on the rate of speciation of the parasites.
