The life cycle of Moniezia expansa was studied experimentally using 10 species of oribatid mites as intermediate hosts. Four of them became infected, namely Scheloribates laevigatus (76.2%), Sch. latipes (70.8%), Liacarus coracinus (20%) and Platynothrus peltifer (1.1%). The last was found for the first time to serve as intermediate host of M. expansa in Czechoslovakia. The development of the cysticercoid of M. expansa in the oribatid mites at 28 degrees C and 85% relative humidity is completed…

Scheloribates laevigatus (Oribatulidae) is the species that demonstrated most susceptibility, both natural and experimental, to develop larval forms of anoplocephalid tapeworms.
Infections of Moniezia expansa (Rudolphi, 1810) in Sheep During the Wet and Dry Seasons on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands
The sheep tapeworm, Moniezia expansa, occurred in 100% of lambs and wethers during the wet warm season on the U.S. Virgin Island of St Croix in 1999 and ended in August 2000, with Infections were heavier and of greater duration in the wet season.
Oribatid mites (Acari, Oribatida) as intermediate hosts of tapeworms of the Family Anoplocephalidae (Cestoda) and the transmission of Moniezia expansa cysticercoids in South Africa.
The highest number of cysticercoids isolated from one individual was six from an adult S. fusifer, and the percentage of infected mites was 7,6, 6,3, 16,4, 66,7, 57,1, 60,0 and 46,7% respectively.
Effect of non-genetic factors on the prevalence of Stilesia globipunctata in the goat
Stilesia globipunctata is a neglected cestode infection of ruminants in the tropics and sub-tropics and the striking observation was that the prevalence peaked during monsoon and at nadir in May.
The sign¬ificance of grazing on the population distribution of soiloribatid mites
Variations in the abundance and relative cont­ribution of different oribatid species within each of the two chosen biotopes were found to be markedly sign­ificant, indicating that local environmental vari­ations had a substantial role in determining the orib­atid population character.

Temporal and spatial dynamics of gastrointestinal parasite infection in Père David’s deer
The summer season and the reproductive period of Père David’s deer had great potential for parasite transmission, and there is a high risk of parasite outbreaks in the Dongting Lake area.
