Parasites have been investigated for some New World primates; however, very little is known about ectoparasites and specifically fur mites.

A total of 276 monkeys were evaluated, and 51 of them were positive for mites of the family Atopomelidae. Listrocarpus alouattae was identified on 22.3% of A. palliata; Listrocarpus capucinus on… Expand
