Genetic analysis of ticks belonging to the Rhipicephalus sanguineus group in Latin America.
A new genotype of Trypanosoma cruzi associated with bats evidenced by phylogenetic analyses using SSU rDNA, cytochrome b and Histone H2B genes and genotyping based on ITS1 rDNA
The findings indicate that the complexity of T. cruzi is larger than currently known, and confirmed bats as important reservoirs and potential source of T.'s cruzi infections to humans.

A. ovale is the vector of Rickettsia sp strain Atlantic rain forest in the state of São Paulo, a novel strain that has been shown to cause an eschar-associated spotted fever.
Novel Ehrlichia and Hepatozoon Agents Infecting the Crab-Eating Fox (Cerdocyon thous) in Southeastern Brazil
In conclusion, the haplotypes found in free-ranging foxes are genetically closely related to pathogens of great veterinary importance, namely E. ruminantium and H. americanum, and it is highly desirable to know if these novel organisms have any important role as agents of diseases in domestic animals and wildlife in Brazil.
Ticks and rickettsiae from wildlife in Belize, Central America
The present study provides unprecedented records of ticks harboring rickettsial agents in the New World, and highlights the possible occurrence of Rickettsia sp.
