Abstract

The present report furnishes information on the morphological features of specimens of Coloceros species collected from Collared-dove Streptopelia decaocto in district Rampur. Three nymphal instars of Coloceros sp. can be differentiated by the number of setae present on the postero-lateral angles of pterothorax and abdominal segment six to ninth in addition to nature of sclerotization and abdominal segmentation.
