Introdução Roedores silvestres são amplamente utilizados em pesquisas cientıf́icas devido à sua relevância como reservatórios de diferentes bioagentes, destacando-se: vıŕus, helmintos, bactérias e protozoários (D'ANDREA et al., 2002; HORTA et al., 2007; KIA et al., 2009). A quantidade de pesquisas voltadas ao parasitismo por artrópodes também é considerável, pois esses animais possuem taxas significativas de prevalência em suas populações de ectoparasitos, devido à nidificação, homeotermia e…

Community of arthropod ectoparasites of two species of Turdus Linnaeus, 1758 (Passeriformes: Turdidae) in southern Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil

The lowest aggregation levels of chewing lice Myrsidea and Brueelia occurred during the reproductive period of both host species, suggesting a reproductive synchronization and a dispersion period of T. rufiventris.

Mixed myiasis by Philornis glaucinis (Diptera: Muscidae), Sarcodexia lambens (Diptera: Sarcophagidae) and Lucilia eximia (Diptera: Calliphoridae) in Ramphocelus dimidiatus (Aves: Thraupidae) chicks in Panama

Philornis glaucinus is reported from Panama for the first time, parasitizing two chicks of Ramphocelus dimidia- tus and a secondary myiasis by Sarcodexia lambens and Lucilia eximia in these chicks is presented.

Ectoparasites from small mammals from the Cerrado region in the Minas Gerais state, Brazil

The objective of the present study was to investigate the prevalence of infestation of ectoparasites associated with small mammals from the Cerrado biome in the National Park Serra do Cipo, Minas Gerais State, Brazil.


The hypotheses that Neotropical laelapine mites are not ectoparasitic, and that females disperse by phoresy are reinforced.

The relationship of sex and ectoparasite infestation in the water rat Scapteromys aquaticus (Rodentia: Cricetidae) in La Plata, Argentina.

There are reasons to think that the sex of the water rat affects ectoparasite burden and specific richness, and this information has epidemiological potential because the closely related Scapteromys tumidus is involved in the transmission of Rickettsia coronii, which causes Marsella fever in humans.

Host-ectoparasite specificity in a small mammal community in an area of Atlantic Rain Forest (Ilha Grande, State of Rio de Janeiro), Southeastern Brazil.

The analyses of the ectoparasite species associated with a small mammal community on Ilha Grande, a coastal island in southern of the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, evaluated the level of

Sucking lice of Venezuelan rodents, with remarks on related species (Anoplura)

The paptT includes discussions and descriptions oi sjx'cies of Anopliira known to occin" on N'eneueian rodents, and of certain other taxa related to Wnezuelan forms. Five genera are represented:

Determinants of ectoparasite assemblage structure on rodent hosts from South American marshlands: the effect of host species, locality and season

The relative effects of host species identity, locality and season on ectoparasite assemblages harboured by four cricetid rodent hosts were assessed across six closely located sites in Buenos Aires province, Argentina, and the effect of locality was similar in different species.

Community composition of laelapine mites (Acari: Laelapidae) associated with the nests and fur of Cerradomys subflavus (Wagner, 1842)

It is found that the structure of mite populations infesting the body of C. subflavus, was strongly biased toward the reproductive female stage, and recaptured hosts were re-infested with laelapine mites at different rates.
