Geographic distribution?
Jerrod: Can you tell us where this bug originated? It is probably a non-native, introduced along with goats, but I would like confirmation. Thanks.

Jerrod, there has been recent discussion
in the Forums here about the best taxonomic hierarchy we should use for the lice here on BugGuide. If you have any advice, could you add a comment to the Forum topic?
