In the northeastern part of Poland, 239 elks (5% of the Polish population) were examined and 7 species of ectoparasites were found. The most frequent included: Lipoptena cervi (94%) and Chorioptes texanus is new species in Poland and it was noted at 50 sites from Warmia and the Mazurian Lake District. 
Taxonomic reconsideration of the genus Chorioptes Gervais and van Beneden, 1859 (Acari: Psoroptidae)
The present review of the literature on mites of the genus Chorioptes Gervais and Van Beneden, 1859 argues for a support of the validity of C. bovis (Hering, 1845) and C. texanus Hirst, 1924 based onExpand
Species of the genus Psoroptes (Acari: Psoroptidae): A taxonomic consideration
A critical review of the literature indicates that the features used to discriminate between the five species are not unequivocal, and conspecificity of the members of the genus Psoroptes has to be presumed which is supported by molecular genetic analyses. Expand
The first outbreak of Chorioptes texanus (Acari: Psoroptidae) infestation in a cattle farm in Korea.
Although the chorioptic mange may not influence the mortality rate in the affected farm, reports indicate that a decline in milk production can be observed and the mites were identified as Choriptes texanus. Expand
Genetic Differentiation of Mites of the Genus Chorioptes (Acari: Psoroptidae)
In an effort to clarify the species status of mites of the genus Chorioptes the second internal transcribed spacer of the rRNA gene was characterized in 14 isolates from cattle, horse, sheep andExpand
Mixed infestation of sarcoptic and chorioptic mange mites in Japanese serow, Capricornis crispus Temminck, 1845 in Japan, with a description of Chorioptes japonensis sp. nov. (Acari : Psoroptidia)
Histopathologically, parakeratotic and hyperkeratotic crusts were observed in the epidermis, and many cross-sections of S, scabiei rnites were also found in the focal thickened stratum corneum. Expand
Factors affecting deer ked (Lipoptena cervi) prevalence and infestation intensity in moose (Alces alces) in Norway
Deer ked exploit the whole moose population within the study area, but are most prevalent in areas dominated by Scots pine, a reflection of Scots pine being the preferred winter browse for moose in areas with highest moose densities in winter. Expand
Chorioptes mites: re‐evaluation of species integrity
This analysis supports the validity of C. bovis and C. texanus as morphologically distinct, and supports the existence of a proposed third species of Chorioptes, and suggests that the mites described by Sweatman in his classic 1958 description of C., texanus, which were obtained from the ears of semi‐domesticated reindeer are likely to have been specimens of this as yet unnamed species.

A previously unidentified Chorioptes species infesting outer ear canals of moose (Alces alces): characterization of the mite and the pathology of infestation
Infestations with a previously undescribed Chorioptes species was frequently detected in the outer ear canals of moose in Sweden, and the mites were evidently pathogenic, being associated with inflammatory lesions of the external auditory meatus. Expand
Chorioptic Mange (Acarina: Psoroptidae) in Domestic and Wild Ruminants in Israel
In this study seasonal distribution could not be demonstrated in cattle, while in sheep and goats the highest infestation rate occurred in February to March and the lowest in August and September, and chorioptic mange was recorded generally throughout the year. Expand
Integrated Bayesian species delimitation and morphological diagnostics of chorioptic mange mites (Acariformes: Psoroptidae: Chorioptes)
The external morphology of adult and immature stages of mange mites of the genus Chorioptes was investigated with the aid of light and scanning electron microscopy. A molecular phylogeny of thisExpand
