The subgenus Marquesania Womersley (Acari : Atopomelidae : Listrophoroides) is revised. The species of this subgenus are permanent parasites living in the fur of rats (Rodentia : Murinae) in the Oriental region, Australia and New Guinea. Most of the type material has been examined. Two new species, Listrophoroides melomys, sp. nov. from Melomys moncktoni (Thomas) and L. mordax, sp. nov. from Rattus mordax (Thomas) are described from New Guinea. A new diagnosis of the subgenus Marquesania… Expand
Fur-mites of the genus Atopomelus Trouessart, 1918 (Acari: Atopomelidae) life-cycle phylogeny and host parasite-associations
TLDR
Plesiomorphic characters of this genus suggest that it is the ancestor of the clade was associated with the basal Eulipotyphla and hedgehogs as the earlier derivative of this host clade. Expand

Phylogenetic relationships among species of the parasitic mite subgenus Listrophoroides Hirst (Atopomelidae), fur-mites of Asian and African murine rodents, are reconstructed on the basis ofExpand

Forest edges affect ectoparasite infestation patterns of small mammalian hosts in fragmented forests in Madagascar.
TLDR
The obtained results imply that habitat fragmentation impacts ectoparasite communities, in particular by negatively affecting temporary parasite species, as well as host-specific responses to habitat fragmentation. Expand

TLDR
Coevolution of host and parasite is studied in the family Myobiidae which parasitizes marsupials, insectivores, bats and rodents, and the concordance between the radiations of the mites and that of their hosts is very high. Expand

Outgroup Analysis and Parsimony
TLDR
Methods that use outgroups in the reconstruction of phylogeny are described and evaluated by the criterion of parsimony, and algorithms and rules are presented that find the most parsimonious estimates of ancestral states for binary and multistate characters when outgroup relationships are well resolved.
