In this and subsequent papers it is intended to review the species of Mallophaga described between 1758 and 1818. As there is frequently confusion over the interpretation of these old names, neotypes will be errected and figured, thus fixing the identity of these species and their type hosts. The first part deals with the swenty-six species described by Linné (1758 and 1761) and the descripitive phrases of E.L. Geoffroy (1762) which previously have been accepted as valid binomial names.
