Not illustrated. 1898 Excerpt: ...emarginated by an uncolored space surrounding the stigmata; on the ventral aspect fulvous transverse bands, concave posteriorly; segment 7 with two longitudinal, lateral fulvous blotches; segment 8 with irregular black marginal bands; segment 9 wholly dark brown to black. Lipeurus diversus Kellogg. New Mallophaga I, 1896, p. 123, pi. viii. figs. 3 and 4. Many specimens from thirteen out of thirty-four individuals shot of the Black-vented Shearwater, Puffmus opisthomelus, from twelve out of fourteen individuals shot of the Dark-bodied Shearwater, P. griseus, from five out of six individuals shot of the Pink-footed Shearwater, P. creatopus, from a single specimen shot of P. bulleri, from a single specimen shot of P. tenuirostris, and a single specimen, probably straggler, from a Short-tailed Albatross, Diomedea albatrus (all the birds from the Bay of Monterey, California). The species was described from Pujjinus opisthomelas (same locality).

There is a regular sequence in size from angusticeps through diversus to abnormis. It may be suspected that we have to do with one species of great variation in size; but the diagnostic characters of the three species are sufficiently important to justify the separation of the forms. Lipeurus densus Kellogg. New Mallophaga II, 1896, p. 114, pi. vii, figs. 1 and 2. Two females and a male from a Short-tailed Albatross, Diomedea albatrus (Bay of Monterey, California). Types taken from Diomedea albatrus and D. nigripes (see Kellogg, Mallophaga from Birds of Panama, Baja California and Alaska, in New Malloph...
