About this book

Language: Spanish

This Fauna Ibérica monograph is devoted to the Ischnocera and it is the second part of the study of Phthiraptera (Mallophaga), the ectoparasitic insects on birds and mammals found throughout the Iberian and Balearic area.

This work includes 179 species of which 164 were collected from birds and 15 from mammals. All these species belong to 52 genera and 12 families and were found in 151 species of birds and 14 species of mammals belonging to 17 and 3 orders respectively from the geographical area studied.

This volume is illustrated by 53 slides and begins with the general characteristics of the group that were already pointed out in the previous volume of Fauna Ibérica (Vol. 20, Mallophaga, Amblycera, Martín Mateo, 2003).

It continues with the systematic relationships of the Iberian Ischnocera and keys for identifying families, genera and species including the description of the morphological characters of each of the species mentioned. Data on the geographical distribution and biology of the hosts and a complete and updated bibliography is also given.

Lastly, in the nomenclatural appendix, the definitions of the different taxa and their variations through time are reviewed, including some nomenclatural changes and a new species dedicated to the eminent expert Robert C. Dagleish.
