During the course of a study on Anoplura material in the Onderstepoort
collection, several specimens of the genus Linognathus were found which seemed
to be incorrectly classified. A comparison with the respective types confirmed
the suspicion and showed that these forms represent five distinct and so far
undescribed species. Furthermore, a new species of Haematopinus collected
recently off Eland, is also described in this paper. The types of all six new
species are in the Onderstepoort collection.
