  Amblycera
The Amblycera are a large suborder of lice, parasitic on both birds and mammals.
The Amblycera are considered the most primitive suborder of lice.
They roam freely over the surface of their host and, unlike other lice, do not form permanent attachments.

 Phthiraptera
Amblycera chew away at younger feathers and soft areas of the skin, causing localized bleeding from which some can drink.
They usually roam freely about the surface of their host and seldom attach firmly to fur or feathers, unlike the avian Ischnocera which are more site specific, and will attach securely to the feathers or fur to escape the preening activity of their host.
His study supported the monophyly of the Phthiraptera, with Anoplura and Rhyncophthirina forming a monophletic group, sister group to the Ischnocera; the Amblycera are the sister group of this assemblage.

Menopon gallinae, the shaft louse - a chewing louse of poultry.
This louse is an example of the Amblycera which contains many chewing lice of domestic and wild birds.
Be able to differentiate on sight the suborders of chewing lice: Amblycera and Ischnocera.

 Lice | Insect Ecology & Veterinary Parasitology | University of Bristol
In the veterinary literature, the Amblycera and Ischnocera are usually discussed together and described as the Mallophaga which, in older textbooks, is accorded status as a sub-order in its own right.
Mallophaga literally means 'wool eating' and the Amblycera and Ischnocera are known as chewing lice.
The description 'biting lice', sometimes used to describe the Anoplura, is a misnomer, because all lice bite.

 BITING LICE
The Amblycera are generally considered to be more primitive with hosts including birds, marsupials and mammals.
Amblycera feed on skin debris primarily although blood feeding may occur due to the rasping action of the mandibles.
Ischnocera are usually referred to as feather or hair lice as they are adapted to cling onto these structures rather than the skin.

 Faunal Analysis- Hymenoptera
The Amblycera are characterized by their distinctive, shortened antennae which are largely concealed within lateral fossae, and by their maxillary palps (Palma and Barker 1996b).
The Ischnocera are separated from the Amblycera by their easily seen, filamentous antennae.
About 193 species in 45 genera are recorded in Canada, but as is the case for the Amblycera, this represents less than half of the approximately 400 species (and 62 genera) that will eventually be included.

I am a N.E.R.C. funded 1st year Ph.D. student about to start attempting to unravel the evolutionary relationships within the Amblycera, a superfamily of the paraphyletic group "Mallophaga" (the chewing lice).
View this link to go straight to the 6 families of the Amblycera as described by Clay (1970).
Eichler (1963) separates the Amblycera into 16 families and a vast number of subfamilies.

This monograph of the Fauna Ibérica Series is devoted to the suborder Amblycera, and is the first part of a study on Mallophaga (insect ectoparasites of birds and mammals) found in the Ibero-Balearic area.
The second part of the monograph includes morphological characters and classification of Amblycera, as well as descriptions and dichotomical identification keys for families, genera and species.
Also included in this volume are data on the geographical distribution and biology of each Amblycera species and on its parasitized hosts, as well as an updated bibliography, two appendices containing complete taxonomic nomenclature and a list of host birds on both the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands.

 Lice
The order has traditionally been divided into two suborders; the sucking lice (Anoplura) and chewing lice (Mallophaga), however, recent classifications suggest that the Mallophaga are paraphyletic and four suborders are now recognised:
Anoplura - sucking lice, including head and pubic lice (see also Pediculosis)\n* Rhyncophthirina - parasites of elephants and warthogs\n* Ischnocera - avian lice\n* Amblycera - chewing lice, a primitive order of lice
