  author={Ingolf Scheffler and Dietrich Dolch and Jargalsaikhan Ariunbold and Annegret Stubbe and Andreas Abraham and Klaus Dr Thiele},
This study analyses ectoparasites found on Mongolian bats between 2008 and 2011. We examined 12 different bat species, with a total of 23 ectoparasite species present. Apart from reporting distributions, we also discuss specific host-parasite relationships. Owing to recent taxonomic changes splitting the Myotis mystacinus-group into several new taxa, their corresponding ectoparasite fauna could also be addressed in detail. Introducing ectoparasitic insects at length elsewhere (SCHEFFLER et al… Expand
Bat Ectoparasites of Mongolia, Part 3
A new bat fly species is described, six parasite species never before recorded in Mongolia are reported, and rare host species such as Myotis frater and Murina hilgendorfi are examined, expanding present knowledge in this research area. Expand
Identification of Taenia Metacestodes from Mongolian Mammals Using Multivariate Morphometrics of the Rostellar Hooks
Principal component analysis of eight characters of hooks from both rows 1 and 2 showed that loadings on PC-I appeared to be mostly a size component with PC-II potentially indicating shape; furthermore, results indicate that, as blade-length increased guardwidth and handle-length decreased leading to observed differences in overall hook-shape.

New geographic and host records of spinturnicid mites (Mesostigmata: Spinturnicidae) in Asia, with description of the protonymph of Spinturnix tylonycterisi
New geographic and host records of spinturnicid mites collected from alcohol-preserved bats at the Zoological Museum of Moscow State University, Russia are presented and Spinturnix tylonycterisi, known previously from Malaysia, is recorded from Vietnam for the first time. Expand

Ectoparasites of Bats in Mongolia (Ischnopsyllidae, Nycteribiidae, Cimicidae and Spinturnicidae)
A number of species found in this study were new records for Mongolia, and for many species additional sites were reported, and the spectrum and frequency of larger ectoparasites could be determined for the first time. Expand
Relationships between the parasitic mite Spinturnix andegavinus (Acari: Spinturnicidae) and its bat host, Myotis daubentonii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae): seasonal, sex- and age-related variation in infestation and possible impact of the parasite on the host condition and roosting behaviour.

The seasonal roosting dynamics of the Daubenton's bat are suggested to be the result not only of changing energetic demands of resident population members, but also of coevolutionary strategies within host-parasite relationships. Expand
A Contribution to the Bats Inhabiting Arid Steppe Habitats in Central Mongolia
Bats of the steppe habitat require particular attention in Mongolia because of increasingly frequent droughts and the looming specter of global warming which could have a devastating impact on theirExpand
