It has been considered advisable to bring the Synoptic Check-list of the Ectoparasites found on South African Mammalia, Aves and Reptilia, published in the 18th Report of the Director of Veterinary Services and Animal Industry, Union of South Africa, 1932, up to date by publishing supplements from time to time as necessity warrants, and this is the first of the series.
Not only is a number of new records reported upon in this
paper, but it has also been found necessary to make alterations to the synonymy of a number of species.
The articles have been scanned in colour with a HP Scanjet 5590; 300dpi.
Adobe Acrobat XI Pro was used to OCR the text and also for the merging and conversion to the final presentation PDF-format.
