Ectoparasites (Insecta and Acari) Associated with Bats in Southeastern Brazil
A survey of ectoparasites infesting bats in southeastern Brazil found that 10 of 181 bats belonging to 16 species were infested by streblid flies, nine by spinturnicid mites, and five by macronyssid mite species.
On the identity of two species of Proctophyllodidae (Acari: Astigmata: Analgoidea) described by Herbert F. Berla in Brazil, with a description of Lamellodectes gen. nov. and a new species.
Two proctophyllodid species described by Herbert F. Berla were studied, re-described and their generic status was re-evaluated, and they were transferred to the genus Platyacarus minor (Berla) comb.
Two new species of the feather mite subfamily Pterodectinae (Acari: Astigmata: Proctophyllodidae) from Brazil
Two new pterodectine feather mites are described from Brazilian passerines (Passeriformes) and a key to species of the genus Dolichodectes is presented.
A new species of the genus Trouessartia Canestrini (Acari: Trouessartiidae) from Neotropical passerines (Aves: Tyrannidae)
A new species of the feather mite genus Trouessartia Canestrini is described from Myiobius atricaudus Lawrence, 1863 (Aves: Passeriformes: Tyrannidae) from Brazil.
A drop in the bucket of the megadiverse chewing louse genus Myrsidea (Phthiraptera, Amblycera, Menoponidae): ten new species from Amazonian Brazil.
Analysis of mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I sequences for these and other neotropical Myrsidea species provides an assessment of their phylogenetic relationships and indicates that all of these newly described species are genetically distinct.
A new genus and two new species of feather lice (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera: Philopteridae) from New Zealand endemic passerines (Aves: Passeriformes).
The first descriptions of New Zealand endemic feather lice belonging to the Brueelia-complex are given and the new genus Melibrueelia and new species M. novaeseelandiae are described, illustrated and compared with morphologically close taxa within the complex.
Feather mites of Brazil (Acari: Astigmata: Analgoidea and Pterolichoidea)
A checklist of feather mites known from native birds in Brazil is presented, estimating that between 900 and 5300 feather mite species are expected to occur on Brazilian birds, which is at least five times greater than current records.
Two new genera and five new species of the feather mite subfamily Proctophyllodinae (Astigmata: Proctophyllodidae) from suboscine birds in Brazil
Two new genera and five new species of feather mites of the family Proctophyllodidae are described from passerine birds from Brazil and the discovery of these taxa might give data for a better understanding of the evolution in general and the dispersion of these mites on passerines in South America in paricular.
Redescriptions of two species and descriptions of three new species of the louse genus Bizarrifrons Eichler, 1938 (Phthiraptera: Ischnocera: Philopteridae)
Sequences of a portion of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (COI) and the nuclear elongation factor 1α (EF-1α) genes for two species are given for the first time in this genus.
