Strandtmann (1948) wrote that the nasal mites of birds were poorly known and poorly understood, and that the system of classification employed by Vitzthum (1935) was far from natural. Unknown to me, Castro (1948) had earlier come to the same conclusion and had offered a revision of the genera of RHINONYSSIDAE. She divided the family into two subfamilies on the basis of the peritreme, the RHINONYSSINAE having no peritreme, and the PTILONYSSINAE having one. Genera were based primarily on… 

Revision of the genusSternostomaBerlese and Trouessart (Acarina: Rhinonyssidae)

The mites of Sternostoma are composed of mites parasitic in the nasal cavities of birds and are closely related to Rhinonyssus, and the two genera were considered by (Zumpt and Till (1955) and (Pereira and de Castro) to be the same—an opinion not shared here.

Survey of Nasal Mites (Acari: Rhinonyssidae, Ereynetidae, Turbinoptidae) in Birds from Three States in the United States

The question of whether cowbirds acquire nasal mites when the host parent is feeding its young, or whether mites are transferred during social interaction of related birds that are commonly found in large, multi-species flocks is addressed.

Phylogenetic relationships in rhinonyssid mites (Acari: Rhinonyssidae) based on ribosomal DNA sequences: insights for the discrimination of closely related species

It is shown that ribosomal sequences can help to discriminate between T. melloi and T. strandtmanni, despite the different hosts of the two mites, as well as the synonymy of S. boydi and S. sartbaevi.

A list of the parasitic Protozoa, Helminths and Arthropoda recorded from species of the Family Anatidae (Ducks, Geese and Swans)

The following list, compiled during my tenure of a grant given by the Nuffield Foundation to the Wildfowl Trust, Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, records species of Protozoa, helminths and Arthropoda

An annotated checklist of mites (Arachnida: Acari) of Zambia

An annotated list of the taxa reported to date in Zambia (formerly Northern Rhodesia) is presented, with data for 90 species or incompletely identified species representing four orders, 42 families and 57 genera.

A new species of nasal mite of the genus Rhinonyssus (Mesostigmata: Rhinonyssidae) from Leningrad Province, Russia

Abstract A new species, Rhinonyssus dobromiri sp. nov., from the genus Rhinonyssus Trouessart, 1894 is described from the avian host the Northern Lapwing, Vanellus vanellus L. (Charadriidae), which

Utility of ITS1–5.8S–ITS2 and 16S mitochondrial DNA sequences for species identification and phylogenetic inference within the Rhinonyssus coniventris species complex (Acari: Rhinonyssidae)

The data show that these molecular markers can help to discriminate between species and populations included in the Rhinonyssus coniventris complex, which are morphologically very close and difficult to separate by classic methods.

Ocorrência de Rhinonyssus rhinolethrum (Trouessart, 1895) (Acarina: Rhinonyssidae) em marreca caneleira Dendrocygna bicolor (Vieillot, 1816) e marreca piadeira Dendrocygna viduata (Linnaeus, 1766) na região sul do Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil

O parasitismo caracteriza o primeiro relato da ocorrencia de R. rhinolethrum sobre Dendrocygna bicolor e sobi no Rio Grande do Sul, ampliando a listagem dos anatideos parasitados por essa especie neste Estado.



Studies on some parasitic mites from Canada and South Africa.

Two new records of Sarcoptoid parasites occurring in South Africa have been included in the paper and the subfamily LABIDOCARPINAE, recently proposed by Gunther, is reviewed.
