The egg and nymphs of Proechinophthirus zumpti are described for the first time and their adults are redescribed. Preliminary data on infestation, population and topographic distribution of P. zumpti based on 10 pelt samples of Arctocephalus pusillus are presented, and a phylogenetic inference is made for Proechinophthirus by comparing P. fluctus and P. zumpti.
