The eggs of Ricinus picturatus, Menacanthus sp., and Philopterus sp. (Mallophaga) taken from the orange-crowned warbler (Vermivora celata) are described. The location of the eggs on the feathers and in the various feather tracts is reported. It is suggested that museum study skins will prove a valuable source of data concerning distribution and ecology of egg-laying in Mallophaga if the presence of louse eggs, rather than adults or nymphs, is studied.
