Anoplura

Short-nosed cattle louse Haematopinus eurysternus, from Quizlet.


Belongs within: Phthiraptera.

The Anoplura are a group of lice that have the mouthparts modified for sucking. All anoplurans are parasites of mammals, and include the most familiar louse species attacking humans.

Synapomorphies (from Grimaldi & Engel 2005): All thoracic segments fused; meso- and metathoracic terga reduced; tentorium completely lost; hypopharynx and labium modified into piercing stylets.
