Brueelia beroica Touleshkov


Brueelia beroica Touleshkov  ” and “ Picicola berojica Touleshkov 

Host: Picus viridis Linnaeus, 1758  —green woodpecker. 

Remarks. “ Brueelia beroica  ” was first mentioned by Touleshkov (1962) and again as “ Picicola berojica  ” by Touleshkov (1964). Ilieva (2009) noted that this species has never been described and that it is a nomen nudum. The lice that Touleshkov (1962, 1964) intended, but failed to describe, may be common on hosts in Bulgaria, considering that Touleshkov (1962, 1964) reported a total of 61 speciemsn from several localities.
