Abstract

The following table represents the results of an examination of birds which died in the Society's Gardens between 1939–1946. In no case can the numbers of Mallophaga be regarded as a total count, though the proportion of sexes is probably correct. In the majority of cases the genus only is given. The correct naming of each species would entail a review of each genus.
