Souad M. Alsaqabi [3]


Abstract: The study present the sucking lice (Anoplura) that affects local farm animals (goats) in the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Al-Ahsa). The study recorded the classification of the lice, and its description using optical microscope and scanning elec-tron microscope. The study clarified the exact composition of the species (Linognathus afri-canus, Kellogg and Paine,.1911), the shape of the head sack, and the distribution of body bristles.
