A rare case of residual root myiasis caused by Clogmia albipunctata larvae (Diptera: Psychodidae)

A 26-year-old lady found two active, living larvae in her mouth while brushing her teeth, and the right second mandibular molar was severely damaged as a result of caries, leaving a residual tooth root.

An annotated checklist of the eukaryotic parasites of humans, exclusive of fungi and algae

A comprehensive checklist of all reported eukaryotic organisms (excluding fungi and allied taxa) parasitizing humans resulting in 274 genus- group taxa and 848 species-group taxa is provided.

Isolation and identification of pathogenic important fungi from the moth fly Clogmia albipunctata (Diptera: Psychodinae) in teaching hospitals, Babol, Iran

It is shown that moth fly carries pathogenic fungi in the hospital environments, therefore, control of C. albipunctata in these places is essential for prevention of fungal infections.

Perhossääski Clogmia albipunctata (Williston) havaittu Suomesta (Diptera, Psychodidae)

The expansive, synanthropic moth fly species Clogmia albipunctata is reported for the first time from Finland, and is among the northernmost records of this global species.

Morphological and initial molecular characterization of Clogmia albipunctatus larvae (Diptera: Psychodidae) causing urinary myiasis in Egypt

The morphological and molecular characterization could accurately diagnose patients to have C. albipunctatus infestation and provided the initial set of data on the molecular identification and phylogenetic analysis of moth flies based on DNA barcoding in Egypt.

Unnoticed arrival of two dipteran species in Austria: the synanthropic moth fly Clogmia albipunctata (Williston, 1893) and the parasitic bird louse fly Ornithoica turdi (Olivier in Latreille, 1811)

Two species hitherto not known from Austria, the regularly sampled synanthropic moth fly Clogmia albipunctata (Psychodidae) and a single specimen of the louse fly Ornithoica turdi (Hippoboscidae), are collected and confirmed using a barcoding approach and provide the first reference sequence for O. turdo.
