The Latin name of the pubic louse is misspelled in at least two places, the intro and the first para. of “Lice and humans”, as ”Phthirus pubic”, instead of the correct ”Phthirus pubis”, which appears in the “Pubic lice” subsection of “Lice and humans”. See, e.g., http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000841.htm.

Thank you for catching this misspelling in the article regarding the scientific name of ”Phthirus pubis”. We have found the errors and now corrected the article with the proper Latin name.
