Abstract

A new species, Myrsidea willardi, is described from the Schlegel's Asity, Philepitta schlegeli, from Madagascar. The only previously described species from the host family Philepittidae, Myrsidea minuscula (Piaget), is redescribed and illustrated. These two species of lice show pronounced genetic divergence based on partial mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I sequences.
