Three isolates of Plasmodium elongatum were obtained from 3 species of raptors (red-tailed hawk [Buteo jamaicensis], bald eagle [Haliaeetus leucocephalus], and eastern screech owl [Otus asio]) from Florida using isodiagnostic techniques in Pekin ducks (Anas platyrhynchos). Six to 10 species of mosquitoes were tested for susceptibility to these 3 isolates. Complete development of the sporogonic cycle of the 3 isolates of P. elongatum occurred in 3 species of mosquitoes, Culex nigripalpus, Culex… 

Aedeomyia squamipennis (Diptera: Culicidae) in Florida, USA, a New State and Country Record

Abstract Aedeomyia squamipennis (Lynch Arribalzaga) is a tropical mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae) found throughout most of the American Tropics, from eastern Mexico through Argentina, including several

A NEW SPECIES OF PLASMODIUM FROM MALAGASY VANGAS

During a recent examination of blood smears from Malagasy birds, a species of avian Plasmodium unlike those currently known was observed, and is classified as a member of the subgenus Haemamoeba because of gametocyte and schizont shape, displacement of the host cell nucleus, as well as distortion of theHost cell.

Do mosquitoes filter the access of Plasmodium cytochrome b lineages to an avian host?

Evidence suggests that parasite–mosquito associations do not restrict the access of parasites to birds but instead may actually facilitate the switching of vertebrate hosts that occurs over evolutionary time.

Compared the haemosporidian parasite faunas of small land birds on the islands of St Lucia, St Vincent and Grenada, similarity in parasite assemblages among the three islands varied in parallel with host assemblage similarity and with geographic proximity.

Seven new species of hematozoa were recognized from the Brachypteraciidae (Ground-rollers), Vangidae (Vangas), Philepittidae (Asities), and Dicruridae (Drongos) and Haemoproteus goodmani, H. greineri were described.

Leucocytozoonosis in Nestling Bald Eagles in Michigan and Minnesota

Thirteen of 21 nestling bald eagles examined for blood parasites in Michigan and Minnesota during June and July 1997 had patent infections of Leucocytozoon toddi, believed to be the first report of L. toddi in the bald eagle.

The results expand the knowledge of the Flaviviridae, reveal a striking pattern of decoupled host/virus coevolution on a continental scale, and highlight knowledge gaps about health and conservation in even the most iconic of wildlife species.

Spatiotemporal variation of mosquito diversity (Diptera: Culicidae) at places with different land-use types within a neotropical montane cloud forest matrix

Mosquito assemblage was differentially influenced by land-use change and seasonality, but at the same time the assemblages is rather homogeneous across the studied landscape, suggesting a high degree of spatial connectivity.

Incrimination of natural culicine vectors which transmit Plasmodium elongatum to penguins at the Baltimore Zoo

Culex pipiens and Culex restuans were determined to be natural vectors of Plasmodium elongatum which is seasonally transmitted to African penguins at the Baltimore Zoo and both were capable of supporting parasite development through the infective sporozoite stage.

Species characteristics were maintained in isodiagnostic Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) and Pekin ducks (Anas platyrhynchos) and in mosquito infection studies, only Culex restuans could support sporogony of P. forresteri, in contrast to Plasmodium elongatum of raptor origin that completed sporogonies in both Cx.
