oa African Zoology - The haemoproteids of the shrikes of the avian family Laniidae (Passeriformes)

  • E-ISSN: 2224-073X



The two haemoproteids parasitizing members of the avian family Laniidae are reviewed. Haemoproteus lanai de Mello, 1937 is re-descriptionbed and a neohapantotype designated; H. lanii var. nucleophilus Helmy Mohammed, 1958 is considered to be the same as H. lanii and therefore the varietal (= subspecific) designation is suppressed; it is confirmed that H. lanuidae Yakunin, 1976 is declared a nomen nudum; Haemoproteus cublae Peirce, 1984 is re-descriptionbed.
