Abstract

Several species of nymphs from the family Hypoderidae have been reported from pelecaniform birds (Cerny, 1969, Folia Parasit. (Praha) 16:271-274; Pence, 1972, J. Med. Ent. 9: 435-438; Pence and Courtney, 1973, J. Parasitol. 59: 711-718); however, there are no records from the white pelican, Pelecanus erythrorhynchos. I report here the occurrence of hypopi from this host species.
