Seven species of mites were recovered from 133 Brazilian free-tailed bats, Tadarida brasiliensis, and 94 big brown bats, Eptesicus fuscus, from February through November 1990 in colonies that shared roosting space in east-central Alabama. The macronyssid Chiroptonyssus robustipes (Ewing) was the most common mite on T. brasiliensis (964 mites, 87% of bats infested) and on E. fuscus (109 mites, 29% of bats infested). However, C. rubustipes normally is a specific parasite of T. brasiliensis. The… 
ECTOPARASITES IN AN URBAN POPULATION OF BIG BROWN BATS (EPTESICUS FUSCUS) IN COLORADO
TLDR
Ectoparasites of an urban population of big brown bats in Fort Collins, Colorado, were investigated and the macronyssid mite, S. occidentalis, was the most prevalent and abundant ectoparsite.

TLDR
The first data on diversity of ectoparasitic mites of T. brasiliensis in Brazil is presented and it is shown that C. robustipes parasitizes T. Brasiliensis throughout its region of occurrence, and this mite is highly prevalent and abundant.
