New and little known Uropodina species from Brazil (Acari: Mesostigmata).
TLDR
Nine Uropodina species were found in Brazilian soil samples of the Soil Zoology Collections of the Hungarian Natural History Museum and one species, Deraiophorus loksaisimilis, is new to the fauna of Brazil.
East and west separation of Rhipicephalus sanguineus mitochondrial lineages in the Mediterranean Basin
TLDR
Detailed molecular-phylogenetic analyses of two mitochondrial markers were performed on 50 ticks collected in Hungary, the Balkans, countries along the Mediterranean Sea, Kenya and Ivory Coast to provide new information on the phylogeography of relevant haplotypes from less studied regions of Europe and Africa.
Synanthropic rodents and their ectoparasites as carriers of a novel haemoplasma and vector-borne, zoonotic pathogens indoors
TLDR
These results indicate that synanthropic rodents, although with low prevalence, may carry zoonotic and vector-borne pathogens indoors.
High mitochondrial sequence divergence in synanthropic flea species (Insecta: Siphonaptera) from Europe and the Mediterranean
TLDR
Differences between mitochondrial lineages within four flea species exceeded that observed between two Chaetopsylla spp.
Diversity of Haemaphysalis-associated piroplasms of ruminants in Central-Eastern Europe, Hungary
TLDR
Although bovine babesiosis and theileriosis was known to occur in Hungary, molecular evidence is provided here for the first time on the presence of Babesia and/or Theileria spp.
New Uropodina (Acari: Mesostigmata) from California, USA
TLDR
Jedediella horneri gen. nov. is described on the basis of two females and four males collected in California, USA, which is unusual among uropodine mites by the shape and length of chelicerae.
Notes on the family Macrodinychidae (Acari: Uropodina) with description of two new species
TLDR
The species Macrodinychus paraguayensis Hirschmann, 1975 is proved to be the junior synonym of Macrodinouschus parallelepipedus (Berlese, 1916).
