oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - On some mallophaga of sea-birds from the Tristan da Cunha Group and the Dyer Island

Volume 15, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The author (1951) descriptionbed two new species namely Pscudomenopon rowani Keler and Parricola zumpti Keler, both found on the flightless Tristan Rail, Atlantisia rogersi Lowe. These two species are mentioned in this paper in order to give a full account. In the present paper, I am giving a survey of all Mallophaga received from the Tristan da Cunha Group adding a descriptionption of a new Austrogoniodes subspecies from the penguin of Dyer Island, Spheniscus demersus L. This is advisable because I want to compare it with another new Austrogoniodes species from the penguin Eudyptes cristatus cristatus Miller, of Tristan da Cunha.
