Research on mites as intermediate hosts of the tapeworms of the Anoplocephalidae family was encouraged by Stunkard (1937), who discovered that mites are intermediate hosts and vectors for Moniezia expansa tapeworms. This discovery stimulated other researchers to look for other mite hosts. In his review written in 1993, Denegri gathered data available up to 1991 associated with mites acting as intermediate hosts. We extended his list by adding information concerning Oribatida, which participate…

Molecular detection of Moniezia spp. (Cestoda) in Pergalumna persica (Acari: Oribatida) in Iran
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the mite P. persica can be infested by M. expansa and M. benedeni in the laboratory and it can be naturally infected by the former species; however cestodes were not detected in the mites A. lanceolata, the first record of P. Persica as the intermediate host of anoplocephalid tapeworms.
Anoplocephala perfoliata Infection in Horses in Iceland: Investigation of Associations between Intensity of Infection and Lesions
TLDR
The prevalence of A. perfoliata in horses in Iceland in this study was found to be relatively high compared with results from many studies performed elsewhere in Europe, and the high prevalence and association with pathology suggest that diagnosis of infection using a sensitive method, along with appropriate treatment, should be considered for Horses in Iceland.
Seasonal dynamics of mites (Acari) in pastures and meadows in Poland, with species analysis of Oribatida
TLDR
Oribatid species were more affected by the habitats than by seasons, as some species were strongly associated with pastures, other with meadows, and some were abundant in both habitats, and the effect of seasonality was weaker than that of the habitat, it was still perceptible.
Effects of life history stage and climatic conditions on fecal egg counts in plains zebras (Equus quagga) in the Serengeti National Park
TLDR
Evidence is presented that parasite burdens in plains zebras are affected by life history stage, environmental conditions, and co-infection and this may indicate reduced immune competence.
Toprak Akarları (Acari: Oribatida) ve Ekotoksikoloji
TLDR
Bu nedenle bu akarlarin biyolojileri ve habitatlarini bilmek, topraklarda bulunan organik maddenin geri donusumunu daha iyi anlamak acisindan cok onemlidir.

TLDR
Scheloribates laevigatus (Oribatulidae) is the species that demonstrated most susceptibility, both natural and experimental, to develop larval forms of anoplocephalid tapeworms.
Laboratory and field studies on oribatid mites as intermediate host of Moniezia expansa infecting Egytptian sheep.
TLDR
M. expansa was able to achieve sucessfully its larval development in the three species of oribatid mites under laboratory conditions, and tadrosi is recorded as inter-mediate host for the first time in Egypt.
Observations on oribatid mites (Acari: Oribatida) serving as intermediate hosts of Moniezia expansa (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) in Iran
TLDR
Preliminary observations on oribatid mites, intermediate hosts of tapeworms of the family Anoplocephalidae, based on mites collected from soil and grass samples from Mazandaran province in the north of Iran, showed that these mite species harbored cysticercoids, likely to act as natural vectors of anoplocephalids.
ORIBATID MITES AS INTERMEDIATE HOSTS OF ANOPLOCEPHALID TAPEWORMS AND THEIR DISTRIBUTION DYNAMICS IN A DESERT SOIL ECOSYSTEM
TLDR
The data obtained revealed that seven species of oribatid mites collected from that chosen soil act as intermediate hosts of tapeworms of the Anoplocephalidae, as they were found to be infected by Tapeworm cysticercoid.
Oribatid mites (Acari : Oribatida) as an intermediate host of Anoplocephalid cestodes in Japan
TLDR
Oribatid mites as an intermediate host of Anoplocephalid cestodes (tapeworm) are reviewed according to the systematic scheme of suborder Oribatida and the distribution of intermediate species is discussed.
[Development of early larval forms of Moniezia expansa under laboratory conditions].
Three species of oribatid mites: Scheloribates latipes, Pergalumna nervosa and Ceratozetes sp. were experimentally infected with Moniezia expansa eggs or oncospheres. The intermediate hosts were kept
Oribatid mites as intermediate hosts of Anoplocephala manubriata, cestode of the Asian elephant in India
TLDR
Anoplocephala manubriata is a tapeworm that parasitizes both African and Asian elephants and five species of oribatids were found to contain at least one immature life stage of A. manubRIata.
