  Phthiraptera
The name Phthiraptera is derived from the Greek "phthir" meaning lice and "aptera" meaning wingless.
All Phthiraptera are wingless external parasites of birds and mammals.
Unlike many other ectoparasites, the Phthiraptera cannot survive long if separated from the body of their host.

 Insect Orders
Phthiraptera are divided into the chewing lice (Mallophaga) and sucking lice (Anoplura).
The chicken head louse, Cuclotogaster heterographus (Nitzsh) (Phthiraptera; Ischnocera: Philopteridae) is an example.
The hog louse, Haematopinus suis (Linnaeus) (Phthiraptera; Anoplura: Haematopinidae) is an example.

 Phthiraptera   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Lice belong to the order Phthiraptera, and are the only truly parasitic group amongst the exopterygote insects.
The order Phthiraptera has been traditionally divided into two groups according to their different feeding habits: the chewing lice or "Mallophaga", and the Anoplura, colloquially known as the sucking lice.
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.

 God of Insects - Museum: Very Small Insects
The Phthiraptera were once treated as two separate orders (Anolplura and Mallophaga) but are now recognized as one.
The ordinal name Phthiraptera is derived from the Greek words "phthir" (lice) and "aptera" (wingless).
Lice can be divided into two groups: those that have mandibles and chew (Mallophaga) and those that have mouthparts designed to suck body fluids (Anolplura), the former probably giving rise to the latter.

 Introduction to the Phthiraptera   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The Phthiraptera are the lice; this one, the human head louse Pediculus capitis, was drawn in the seventeenth century by the early microscopist and scientist Robert Hooke.
Lice are insects that have secondarily lost their wings and become ectoparasites -- external parasites -- on birds and mammals.
Since the Phthiraptera as we know them today are restricted to birds and mammals, lice probably did not come into existence before the Jurassic -- although ancestral Phthiraptera might have fed on the ancestors of birds (dinosaurs!) and of mammals in the Triassic.
