Pedicinidae

provided by wikipedia EN

Pedicinus is a genus of sucking louse, the only genus in the family Pedicinidae.[2] Species belonging to this genus are found on Old World monkeys and apes of different kinds.[3][4] Pedicinus, along with its sister genus Pthirus, are believed to have diverged from their common ancestor approximately 22.5-2.5 million years ago.[5]

Pedicinus has been studied on a genetic level by researchers looking for insight into the evolutionary history of their primate hosts.[6]
