It is suggested that the close ectoparasite-host relationships could be examined as an additional tool to elucidate the taxonomic relationships between the hosts.

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.
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…
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.
New morphological analysis of the bat wing mites of the genus Periglischrus (Acari: Spinturnicidae).

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.
Parasites of Tadarida brasiliensis mexicana (Chiroptera: Molossidae) from Arid Regions of Mexico
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.

Evidence is provided that some species of Streblidae may respond differently to habitat fragmentation than their hosts, generating changes to bat‐ectoparasite interactions in fragmented areas.
A New Species of the Genus Hirstiella (Acari: Prostigmata: Pterygosomatidae) Parasitic on Phyllodactylus bordai (Reptilia: Squamata: Gekkonidae) in Mexico
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.
