Caption: Light micrograph of a female human head louse, Pediculus humanus capitis. The head louse inhabits the hair of the head, glueing its eggs (called nits) to the shafts of individual hairs. The head louse is closely related to the body louse Pediculus humanus corporis; the two subspecies are capable of interbreeding. Their main difference is in habitat: body lice live in clothing, moving on to the skin to feed. Magnification: x14 at 35mm size.
