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
The occurrence of Demodex kutzeri Bukva, 1987 (Acari, Demodecidae) in red deer (Cervus elaphus L.) in Poland.
The occurrence of Demodex kutzeri Bukva, 1987 was examined and compared in red deer coming from different populations--25 red deer from northern Poland (Masurian Lake District) and 25 from southernExpand
Molecular Characterization of Lipoptena fortisetosa from Environmental Samples Collected in North-Eastern Poland
Molecular analyses revealed considerable genetic diversity, which could indicate that various ectoparasite lineages have spread throughout Europe, including Lipoptena fortisetosa. Expand
Molecular Detection of Selected Pathogens with Zoonotic Potential in Deer Keds (Lipoptena fortisetosa)
The results of the study indicate that keds can be used as biological markers for investigating the prevalence of vector-borne diseases in the population of free-ranging cervids and host-seeking individuals in the environment. Expand
Molecular characterization of Lipoptena cervi from environmental samples collected in Poland
The findings suggest that the two dominant sequences are the oldest sequences that gave rise to the locally identified haplotypes of L. cervi in Poland, and the lack of significant correlations with the sequences obtained in regions situated west of the research sites suggests the presence of other genetic populations in Europe.

Temporal-Microclimatic Factors Affect the Phenology of Lipoptena fortisetosa in Central European Forests
The results suggest that the abundance of ectoparasites is correlated with time, temperature, relative humidity and wind speed, and these relationships can be used to minimize the negative impact of keds on humans, livestock and companion animals. Expand
The Biodiversity of Demodecid Mites (Acariformes: Prostigmata), Specific Parasites of Mammals with a Global Checklist and a New Finding for Demodex sciurinus
The present paper lists all formally-described valid species of demodecid mites, together with other functioning specific names, verified and with comments on their status, significant for correct species identification and demodemodecosis diagnostics. 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
Demodex acutipes Bukva et Preisler, 1988 (Acari, Demodecidae)--a rare parasite of red deer (Cervus elaphus L.).
Two species of demodectic mites were described in the red deer Cervus elaphus, including Demodex kutzeri, which had also been found in other species of the Cervidae family in Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland and North America, while D. acutipes is a new species for the fauna of Poland.
