Corvonirmus Eichler, 1944 

Corvonirmus Eichler, 1944: 80  .

Lycocoranirmus Mey, 2017: 137. New synonymy.

Type species: Nirmus uncinosus Burmeister, 1838: 430  . By original designation.

Remarks. Mey (2017) placed 27 species in Corvonirmus  , including all species placed in Hecatrishula  by Gustafsson & Bush (2017), but these two genera can be separated by the characters listed by Gustafsson & Bush (2017). Among those 27 species of Corvonirmus  , five were described by Mey (2017) as new, with four from Australia and one from China. They appear to be valid species and with the exception of Co. orientalis Mey, 2017  we have examined additional material of the Australian species, confirming our appraisal. However, the diagnoses, text descriptions and figures given by Mey (2017) are not, in themselves, sufficient to clearly separate the four species from Australian hosts.

Furthermore, we regard Mey’s new genus Lycocoranirmus as congeneric with Corvonirmus  , and presumably based on straggling lice. We discuss Lycocoranirmus in more detail below.
