Brownsea Island Ked

Hello,

I was going through some old photographs and found one of a wingless ked found on a feather at Brownsea Island back in July 2013. I was with a friend so did not collect it on the day so I can't take it through the key. Does anyone here have an idea what it could be? I think the feather was from a Peacock.

Regards,
Andrew.

Biting louse (Phthiraptera), not Diptera - I think this one is Goniodes pavonis

Thanks, Tony. No wonder it didn't resemble anything in Hutson's key.

There is nothing on NBN or the internet similar to Goniodes pavonis. Maybe an old name? Not to worry anyway.

Regards,
Andrew.

Hello Tony and Darwyn,

That's exactly where I went next and got in touch with Vince who backed up the suggestion of Goniodes pavonis.

Thanks again, Tony.

Regards,
Andrew.
