David T. Nicolson - ITIS Data Development Coordinator: Vince S. Smith (personal communication, April 2004) notes that while there is ongoing controversy surrounding the status of human head and body lice (Pediculus humanus capitis De Geer 1778 & Pediculus humanus humanus Linnaeus 1758, respectively), there is a lot of evidence to say that they are not genetically separable. He suggests that they be treated as a single undivided species, rather than as two distinct species or subspecies
