Answer to Case 377

Answer:  Pthirus pubis, the crab louse; also nicknamed here 'Santa' louse.

As so nicely described by Kamran and Florida Fan, 'Santa' louse is coming down the hair shaft to leave a gift of a nit glued onto a hair shaft!

And a poem from Blaine:
Nice guys and gals will get toys in their stocking
But the naughty ones are sure to get something more shocking!
For the gift that keeps on giving is a parasitic louse
And that’s what you get for stepping out on your spouse!
So you’d better be good ‘cuz Santa Crab’s always watching!

Happy Holidays to all of my Readers! May the parasites you see not be your own.
