Epizoic Fauna Survey on Phyllostomid Bats (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae) in a Shaded Coffee Plantation of Southeastern Chiapas, Mexico
TLDR
It is suggested that the close ectoparasite-host relationships could be examined as an additional tool to elucidate the taxonomic relationships between the hosts. Expand
Class II DRB polymorphism and sequence diversity in two vesper bats in the genus Myotis
TLDR
It is concluded that M. vivesi has undergone a dramatic loss of MHC polymorphism, and the significance of this inference in light of other information on population structure and genetic diversity in this species is discussed. Expand
Parasites of Tadarida brasiliensis mexicana (Chiroptera: Molossidae) from Arid Regions of Mexico
TLDR
Ninety-eight Mexican free-tailed bats, Tadarida brasiliensis mexicana, collected from 4 locations in Mexico between November 1996 and June 1998, were examined for metazoan parasites, and Chiroptonyssus robustipes was the most prevalent and abundant parasite in all 4 localities. Expand
Two New Species of the Genus Periglischrus (Acari: Mesostigmata: Spinturnicidae) on Two Bat Species of the Genus Tonatia (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae) from Southeastern Mexico, with Additional Data
TLDR
The morphological features of the two new species of Periglischrus are used as a basis for discussing their phylogeny and its potential relationship to that of their hosts. Expand
Detection of Dengue Virus in Bat Flies (Diptera: Streblidae) of Common Vampire Bats, Desmodus rotundus, in Progreso, Hidalgo, Mexico.
TLDR
This study detects Flavivirus sequences in 38 pools of ectoparasites and 8 tissue samples of D. rotundus by RT-PCR and semi-nested PCR using FlaviPF1S, FlaviPR2bis, and Flavi3S primers specific for NS5, a gene highly conserved among flaviviruses. Expand
Streblidae (Diptera: Hippoboscoidea) from Yucatan and Updated Species List for Mexico
TLDR
The diversity of ectoparasitic bat flies (Diptera: Streblidae) in the state of Yucatan, Mexico is described, with five species—N. Expand
A New Species of the Genus Hirstiella (Acari: Prostigmata: Pterygosomatidae) Parasitic on Phyllodactylus bordai (Reptilia: Squamata: Gekkonidae) in Mexico
TLDR
Hirstiella jimenezi is the first finding of Pterygosomatid mites on hosts of this genus, and the female, male, deutonymph, and larva are described and illustrated. Expand
A New Species of Parichoronyssus (Acari: Dermanyssoidea: Macronyssidae) from Bats of the Genus Phyllostomus (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae) in Peru and Venezuela, with Keys to the Species of
TLDR
The female, male, deutonymph, and protonymph are described and illustrated and a key to the seven species of Parichoronyssus is provided. Expand
Drivers potentially influencing host–bat fly interactions in anthropogenic neotropical landscapes at different spatial scales
TLDR
It is observed that bats roosting dynamics can shape bat–streblid interactions, modulating parasite prevalence and the intensity of infestation, and a degraded matrix could favor crowding and consequently the exchange of ectoparasites among bat species, lessening the level of specialization of the interaction networks and promoting novel interactions.
