The Trichodectidae infest mammals: Genera of Medical and Veterinary Importance.

This damage is known as spot and fleck. Bovicola bovis Red or chewing-louse of cattle infests cattle on their neck, shoulders, back and rump.

This louse is an intermediate host for the tapeworm of dogs, Dipylidium caninum. They cause irritation, pruritus, restlessness, repetitive grooming, debility, and reduced productivity.

Poultry fluff louse, Goniocotes gallinae (De Geer, 1778)

Biting-stress leads to loss of production from heavy infestations. However, sick, very old cats, or long-hair breeds may suffer from their infestations with this louse [2]. Palps are absent at the mouthparts.

From Wikibooks, open books for an open world. The dog becomes infected when it ingests infected lice that it has groomed off [3]. Bovicola bovis feeding activity can cause damage to the appearance of processed hides. Mouthparts are supplemented with a pair gallinnae palps next to the chewing mandibles.

On the gallinaae surface of the head a pair of backward directed spines is usually visible. Effective self-grooming seems to protect most cats from harmful levels of infestation.

Tallinae lice mostly parasitize birds, but also are found on marsupial mammals, and mammals in the Americas. It feeds only on the feathers and these lice can be seen in rows clasping a feather shaft [8]. The lice may penetrate the blood vessels at base of feathers, leading to anemia. Parasitic Insects, Mites and Ticks: Lipeurus caponis Wing-louse infests the underside of wings and tail of chickens. Infestations are usually slight, but heavy infestations damage the plumage gobiocotes cause restlessness leading to reduced productivity of poultry [4].

The claws of the legs do not articulate onto a distinct tibial claw as often seen in the sucking lice. Menacanthus stramineus Chicken body-louse infests chickens, other poultry species, aviary and game birds. This occurs despite the superficial feeding of these lice [1]. Lice in this group are similar in feeding habits to the ischnoceran lice because galllinae feed with chewing mouthparts.

Gonoides dissimilis Brown chicken-louse and G.


Goniocotes gallinae (De Geer, ) – Taxonomy

These lice have no blood-sucking mouthparts. It also infests wild canids. Menopon gallinae Shaft-louse infests chickens, turkeys and ducks on their breast and thigh feathers.

Irritation, pruritus, and restlessness cause loss of production. Heterodoxus spiniger is considered to have evolved in Australia. The three segments goniocores the thorax are fused together, and the boundaries between them are indistinct.

Felicola subrostrata is the only species of louse likely to be found on domestic cats. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. This combination of pathological effects often greatly reduces productivity of a flock.

Note that in comparison to an infestation of sheep with ogniocotes scab mites Bovicola lice do not directly cause the skin to form moist scabs, the surface of the skin will appear intact, although with heavy infestations self-grooming may damage the skin.

Young birds are particularly harmed by these lice; infestations can build up rapidly, leaving the birds weak and even killing them. Goniocotes gallinae Fluff-louse commonly infests poultry, amongst the down feathers over most of the body.
