New feather mites of the family Pterolichidae (Acari: Pterolichoidea) from parrots (Aves: Psittaciformes) in Australia
A brief overview of taxonomic studies of pterolichid mites living on Psittaciformes is given, and the main diagnostic characters of different generic groups of these mites are discussed.
New species of the feather mite genus Protolichus Trouessart, 1884 (Astigmata, Pterolichidae) from lories and lorikeets (Aves: Psittaciformes).
Five new species of the feather mite genus Protolichus Trouessart, 1884 are described from parrots of the subfamily Loriinae (Psittaciformes: Psittacidae) - one of which belongs to the brachiatus species group; the other three belong to the crassior species group.
Three new feather mite genera of the Protolichus generic group (Astigmata, Pterolichidae) from parrots (Aves, Psittaciformes) of the Old World
Three new genera of feather mites of the Protolichus generic group, restricted to parrots, are established based on re-examination of type series and some previously unidentified mite specimens deposited in the collection of E. Trouessart.
Aralichus porrectus (Mégnin & Trouessart) and related feather mite species (Acarina, Pterolichidae) from parrots of the genus Brotogeris Vigors (Aves, Psittacidae)
A species complex of the large genus Aralichus Gaud (Pterolichoidea, Pterolichidae) is restricted to Central and South American parrots of the genus Brotogeris Vigors and five new species are described.
Systematic revision of the feather mite genera Apexolichus Gaud et Atyeo and Titanolichus Gaud et Atyeo (Astigmata, Pterolichidae), parasites of parrots of the Old World (Psittaciformes, Psittacidae)
Both of these genera, together with the monotypic genus Sideroferus Gaud et Atyeo, 1996 (being a sister group of Titanolichus), form a clade within the ProtolichUS generic group and are restricted in their host associations to parrots of the tribe Platycercini (Psittacidae, Psittacinae), members of which occur in the Australia and Indo-Malayan region.
Feather mites (Acariformes: Analgoidea) associated with the hairy woodpecker Leuconotopicus villosus (Piciformes: Picidae) in Panama
Two new feather mite species of the superfamily Analgoidea are described from the hairy woodpecker Leuconotopicus villosus in Panama: Pterotrogus panamensis sp.
Systematic revision of the feather mite genus Protolichus Trouessart, 1884 (Astigmata, Pterolichidae)
A new expanded diagnosis for the genus Protolichus is provided and a key to all known species is constructed for the first time.
Gastrointestinal and external parasites of Enicognathus ferrugineus and Enicognathus leptorhynchus (Aves, Psittacidae) in Chile.
Parasite species are important components of biodiversity, as they provide valuable information about host health, evolutionary relationships, population structures, trophic interactions, the
Feather mites of Brazil (Acari: Astigmata: Analgoidea and Pterolichoidea)
A checklist of feather mites known from native birds in Brazil is presented, estimating that between 900 and 5300 feather mite species are expected to occur on Brazilian birds, which is at least five times greater than current records.
Six new feather mite species (Acari: Astigmata) from the carolina parakeet Conuropsis carolinensis (Psittaciformes: Psittacidae), an extinct parrot of North America
We describe six new feather mite species collected from museum skins of the carolina parakeet Conuropsis carolinensis Linnaeus, 1758, which lived in North America and became extinct at the beginning
