Isolation of Eyach virus (Reoviridae, Colorado tick fever group) fromIxodes ricinus andI. ventalloi ticks in France
TLDR
Virological and serological results indicated that these strains belong to the Colorado tick fever serogroup and are indistinguishable from Eyach virus, a tick-borne virus previously described from West Germany. Expand
Parasites of domestic and wild animals in South Africa. XXXVI. Arthropod parasites of yellow mongooses, Cynictis penicillata (G. Cuvier, 1829).
TLDR
Eighty yellow mongooses, Cynictis penicillata, from five localities in South Africa were examined for arthropod parasites and a single biting louse species was recovered and it was the most prevalent ectoparasite on the mongoose. Expand
The isolation of Meaban virus, a newFlavivirus from the seabird tickOrnithodoros (Alectorobius) maritimus in France
TLDR
Seven strains of a new flavivirus, for which the name of Meaban virus is proposed, were isolated from the seabird tick Ornithodoros (A.)maritimus collected during 1981 and 1982 in nests of herring gulls on islands of South Brittany, France. Expand
Parasites of domestic and wild animals in South Africa. XLIV. Fleas (Insecta: Siphonaptera: Pulicidae) collected from 15 carnivore species.
Fleas were collected from 61 wild carnivores belonging to 13 species in various nature reserves and on farms, two feral domestic cats in a nature reserve and a domestic dog in the city ofExpand
Bartonella and Rickettsia in arthropods from the Lao PDR and from Borneo, Malaysia☆
TLDR
The degrees of similarity of partial gltA and ompA genes with recognized species indicate the rickettsia detected in two Boophilus spp. Expand
Bartonella clarridgeiae, B. henselae and Rickettsia felis in fleas from Morocco
TLDR
For the first time in Morocco, Rickettsia felis, the agent of flea-borne spotted fever in Ctenocephalides felis; B. henselae, an agent of cat scratch disease; and Bartonella clarridgeiae, a cat pathogen and potentially a human pathogen are found. Expand
Fleas (Insecta-Siphonaptera) of Chile: a review.
This study presents a revision of the fleas (Siphonaptera) in Chile, gathered from 1993-2013 in response to a request to update our knowledge of the fauna of this country, as catalogued by BeaucournuExpand
EPIFAUNISTIC ARTHROPOD PARASITES OF THE FOUR-STRIPED MOUSE, RHABDOMYS PUMILIO, IN THE WESTERN CAPE PROVINCE, SOUTH AFRICA
TLDR
The aims of the study were to quantify the species richness, prevalence, and relative mean intensity of infestation of epifaunistic arthropod species associated with R. pumilio, and to determine temporal variations in the mean abundance of the parasitic arthropods. Expand
First detection of Rickettsia felis and Bartonella clarridgeiae in fleas from Laos.
TLDR
This work analysed fleas collected in Laos for evidence of rickettsial infection and identified the possible aetiologic agents and vectors for fleaborne agents affecting humans. Expand
Rickettsiae in arthropods collected from red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) in France.
TLDR
The role of red foxes in the epidemiology of spotted fever caused by Rickettsiae species requires further investigation and did not reveal any Bartonella species in any of the ticks or fleas collected. Expand
