1913] Paine and Mann — Mallophaga from Brazilian Birds 15 MALLOPHAGA FROM BRAZILIAN BIRDS. 1 By John H. Paine and William M. Mann. We have recently received from Dr. E. Snethlage, director of the Division of Zoology at the Museu Goeldi at Para, the small, but very interesting collection of Brazilian Mallophaga listed herewith. The specimens were taken by Dr. Sneth-lage from birds collected by her. The identifications of the birds are from the same source. Goniocotes verrucosus Taschenberg. (Fig. 1). Two specimens, male and female, of this curious form from Crypturus tataupa Temm. (Marajo, Brazil. Nov. 1911). So far as we know, this is the first record of the female of this species. It is con-siderably larger than the male, especially as regards the length of abdomen. Pe-culiar to this species are the curious, dark, semi-circular scales, attached to the dorsal surface of the insect by their lateral edges, and arranged in double and sin-gle rows on the thorax and abdomen. (Fig. lb). We figure the female, in outline, Taschenberg's figure of the male being rather indefinite and lacking in detail. •;»* &» KJ> -»/r . Fig 1. Goniocotes verrucosus Tasch. Measurements.
